Threatened Ecological Communities

Improving the condition of Threatened Ecological Communities, Stage 2

This Regional Land Partnership project continues our work to manage threats and restore habitat at a local scale. Through local action we aim to support regional and landscape scale benefits and improve condition, ecological resilience, connectivity and climate change adaptability for our threatened ecosystems.

Stage 2 enables Perth NRM to 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’.

If you are interested in seeing the work being achieved by the community, you can visit a variety of bushland reserves in Perth including Lake Wannamal/ Mogumber Nature Reserve, Paganoni Swamp Reserve, Forrestdale Lake Nature Reserve, Bullsbrook Nature Reserve, Greater Brixton Street Wetlands, and Ashfield Flats.

The project also runs capacity building events and community workshops to facilitate volunteerism, host site tours, and improve community awareness on project activities. As part of Stage 2, project activities delivered through direct community action include vegetation condition assessments, feral animal control, weed mapping and treatment, fencing, dieback management, seed collection, debris removal, and restoration activities.

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

 

This project is supported by Perth NRM, through funding from the Australian Government’s National Landcare Program.
