Threatened Species

This Regional Land Partnership project will manage populations and habitat at a local scale to improve the trajectory and distribution of priority species.

Back from the Brink Project, Stage 2

This Regional Land Partnership project continues our work to help manage critical habitat at a local scale to improve the trajectory and distribution of threatened species. The project also runs awareness campaigns for the community to learn more on our threatened species through promotion, facilitating volunteerism, and hosting site tours. You can participate in a site tour by booking with Karakamia Wildlife Sanctuary.

Stage 2 supports the continued effort to gather data on population genetics, fauna population and distribution to establish population trajectories for several threatened mammal species. Perth NRM continues to work with conservation groups to improve the habitat of Black-flanked Rock-wallaby, Woylie, Chuditch, Western Ringtail Possum, and Carnaby’s Black Cockatoo.

Stage 2 is supporting project work delivered through direct community action. Activities include mapping and removing weeds, installing and monitoring nest boxes, seed collection and habitat restoration, fauna surveys and feral animal control across a variety of sites such as the Avon Valley National Park, Karakamia Wildlife Sanctuary, Paruna Wildlife Sanctuary, and the Chittering area.

Referencing National Recovery Plans, this project implements actions to conserve priority species at two wildlife sanctuaries, one national park, and across 2ha of strategic remnants of Carnaby’s Black Cockatoo nesting and foraging habitat.

Perth NRM will deliver the project in partnership with:

  • Ellen Brockman Integrated Catchment Group
  • Australian Wildlife Conservancy
  • World Wide Fund for Nature
  • Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions

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