Improving the condition of Threatened Ecological Communities in the Swan NRM region, Stage 1
This Regional Land Partnership project will manage threats and restore habitat at a local scale and will support regional and landscape scale benefits of improved condition, ecological resilience, connectivity and climate change adaptability.
The project will establish baseline vegetation condition, fauna presence and weed distribution data to enable outcomes to be demonstrated. Through engaging the community in planning, implementation, training and workshops the project will improve community awareness, understanding, & capacity for best practice TEC management.
Perth NRM will work with community groups to protect and improve the condition of listed Threatened Ecological Communities including ‘Banksia Woodlands’, ‘Clay Pans’, ‘Shrub lands and Woodlands of the Eastern Swan Coastal Plain (SCP Community 20c)’, ‘Corymbia calophylla – Kingia australis woodlands on heavy soils of the Swan Coastal Plain (SCP Community 3a)’, ‘Gingin Ironstone’, ‘Coastal Saltmarsh’, ‘Assemblages of plants and invertebrate animals of tumulus springs’ and ‘Shrublands and woodlands on Muchea limestone’.
Site works will occur across a variety of bushland reserves in Perth including Lake Wannamal/ Mogumber Nature Reserve, Paganoni Swamp Reserve, Forrestdale Lake Nature Reserve, Bullsbrook Nature Reserve and Greater Brixton Street Wetlands.
Project activities will include vegetation condition assessments, feral animal control, weed mapping and treatment, fencing, dieback management, seed collection and debris removal.
Perth NRM will deliver the project in partnership with:
- Ellen Brockman Integrated Catchment Group
- South East Regional Centre for Urban Landcare
- World Wide Fund for Nature
- City of Swan
- Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions
