Project Description

The Nightcap Threatened Species Recovery project is restoring critically endangered lowland subtropical rainforest in a wildlife corridor providing habitat for 21 EPBC listed threatened species. this project is funded by the Australian Government National Landcare Programme Threatened Species Recovery Program. Extensive areas of lantana and other weeds degrade threatened species habitat in the Wanganui Gorge and Minyon Falls areas of Nightcap National Park. Community field days, local school biodiversity workshops and project promotions will develop awareness of the significance of threatened species and lowland rainforest and skills in weed control and restoration techniques.
