Project Description

Newry Golden Wattle (Acacia chrysotricha) is a threatened species with a restricted distribution south of Bellingen in Northern NSW. It is threatened by weed encroachment from a suite of species, logging and inappropriate fire regime. Systematic bush regeneration works will control weed threats to habitat on private land. The area is key koala habitat and vegetation restoration works will benefit this species by improving access to habitat areas and feed trees. The project is increasing habitat connections, vegetation extent and reduce weed impacts in the Bellingen and Kalang River Valleys.
