DEC Warren District: Increasing native habitat through protection of EPBC species and ecological communitiesProject Completed before: June 30, 2013
DEC's Warren region’s Increasing Native Habitat project will address key threats to EPBC listed species including, sunset frog; Australasian bittern, quokka, Balston’s pygmy perch and the Walpole burrowing crayfish.
Targeted threat abatement actions will be implemented via invasive species management activities that include management of invasive weeds (arum lily, typha, blackberry and other perennial weeds) and management of fallow deer within critical habitat for target conservation species. The specific area to be treated is 97 ha and will contribute to the protection of 36,313 ha of potential 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.
