DEC South Coast Region: Increasing native habitat through protection of EPBC species and ecological communitiesProject Completed before: June 30, 2013
This project will address key threats to EPBC listed species including; Lambertia orbifolia, Conostylis misera, Myoporum turbinatum, Lambertia echinata subsp. echinata, dibbler, Gilbert’s potoroo, western ringtail possum, quokka, noisy scrub-bird, western whipbird, Australasian bittern and the EPBC listed ecological community montane thicket of the eastern Stirling Range.
Targeted threat abatement actions will be implemented via invasive species management activities that include management of invasive weeds, invasive vertebrates and disease hygiene control actions within critical habitat for target conservation species. The specific area to be treated is 12,060 ha and will contribute to the protection of approximately 20,000 ha of potential connected habitat for EPBC listed taxa.
Threat abatement actions will be implemented via established management activities cited and derived from Individual Species Recovery Plans and in the Threatened Species and Ecological Communities Regional Strategic Management Plan for the South Coast NRM Region.
