Back from the Brink Project, Stage 1

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

The project will establish baseline indicator data on population genetics, fauna population and distribution to establish population trajectories. The project will increase community awareness of threatened species through promotion, facilitating volunteerism, and hosting site tours.

Perth NRM will work with conservation groups to improve the habitat of Black-flanked Rock-wallaby, Woylie, Chuditch, Western Ringtail Possum, Carnaby’s Black Cockatoo. Project work will include activities such as removing weeds, nest box installation, seed collection, fauna surveys and feral animal control across a variety of sites such as the Avon Valley National Park and Darling Range.

Referencing National Recovery Plans, this project will implement 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:
