Restoring Mallacoota’s Nature Reserves for Wildlife and Community Recovery

This project aimed to safeguard the recovery of 127ha of bushfire-affected coastal scrub and lowland forest, including an endangered remnant littoral rainforest, in an Important Bird Area in Mallacoota District, to be achieved through:

  1. Surveys and mapping of invasive weeds and native vegetation recovery;
  2. Controlling invasive weeds;
  3. Preventing erosion to protect waterways and facilitate vegetation re-establishment;
  4. Seed collection for the community seedbank and nursery; and,
  5. Engaging the local community in planting native vegetation as well as feeding back project outcomes and future management recommendations.
