Project Description

Located in a narrow gorge between Nightcap World Heritage Area and Goonengerry National Park the site is habitat for over 17 threatened animals and 10 threatened plant species. Envite Environment has implemented seven years of lowland rainforest restoration. Lantana was blocking rainforest regeneration. Control of lantana over 30ha included tractor clearing, over-spraying and hand weeding. Resilient regenerating rainforest up to six metres high is replacing weeds. NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service acquired the area in mid 2014. Restoration work is continuing to restore the integrity of the rainforest and wildlife
