This project will be used to educate the local Redland City community on the benefits of restoring a target area for Koalas, wildlife and the local environment. Currently, the site is infested with environmental weeds. Large-scale weed control, site preparation and planting of up to 5000 local native plants will take place on the site. It is the first stage of connecting a corridor for a wildlife and Koala linkage.
- Will start to connect an important corridor between two reserves, allowing movement for local, nomadic and migratory wildlife.
- Promote awareness of Koala and wildlife conservation in the Redlands.
- Increase and improve wildlife habitat in the local area.
- Restore an area of Melaleuca quinquenervia, Eucalyptus tereticornis, Lophostemon suaveolens woodland.
- Restore an area of open forest of Eucalyptus racemosa, E. seeana and Lophostemon suaveolens. These species have been extensively cleared and fragmented in the region and may be home to threatened fauna, such as Grey-headed flying foxes, Koalas and Green-thighed Frogs.
- Improve biodiversity of the plant species by extending and reconnecting the natural local extent of the local occurring species. Thereby allowing genetic drift between the fragmented areas.
- Remove heavy weed infestations to remove species competition and promote native regeneration.
