Projects

Dunns Creek Biolink

Dunns Creek Biolink is a 3-year project funded by the RE Ross Trust which will reconnect two high habitat-value nature conservation reserves (Bald Hill and Kangerong) through bushland restoration and feral animal control across seven private properties.  The biolink will enhance existing bushland through the removal of invasive plants in areas of remnant indigenous vegetation and re-planting indigenous trees and shrubs to create improved private-land connectivity.

Forty-five hectares of habitat-altering weeds are being removed as part of the project.  In 2019, the community came together with the assistance of Raw Travel on National Tree Day to plant more than 1,000 indigenous trees and shrubs at Sussex farm. In 2020, an additional 1,500 indigenous plants have been installed on another biolink property. Fauna will be further protected through fox and rabbit control across 520 hectares and nest boxes installed on properties with an absence of hollow bearing trees.
