Project ID: E1685X710461
Anticipated Start Date: 18/09/2017
The Central Australian subspecies of Mala are all descended from 22 animals. The Alice Springs Desert Park (ASDP) currently has 17 animals. To prevent inbreeding breeding spaces need to be maximised. In addition to the current off display breeding facilities (including the Mala Breeding Pens constructed in 2015 by Green Army), ASDP has a 4.5 hectare site where Mala are held and bred surrounded by a predator proof fence. A major upgrade is needed to existing fencing. In the Mala Recovery Plan ASDP is identified as a major location for public education re Mala. In this exclosure people gain close proximity to Mala and learn of their plight. New path installation, as part of this project would maximise access.
Project ID: E1687X710463
Anticipated Start Date: 31/07/2017
The project will provide ongoing assistance to Land for Wildlife volunteer members undertaking rehabilitation of their properties for nature conservation. Primarily targeting the Black-footed tree-rat, ongoing seed collection, plant propagation, and on-ground activities will increase the capacity of landholders to provide suitable habitat and food source native plants for this threatened species. The project will provide Green Army participants with the ability to gain or improve skills in horticulture and land management activities, community engagement, and flora and fauna surveying techniques, while contributing towards improved habitat quality, protection and restoration of remnant vegetation in the greater-Darwin area.
Project ID: E1686X710462
Anticipated Start Date: 24/07/2017
This project will assist in habitat assessment of nesting sites and waterhole monitoring of the largest known breeding population of Gouldian Finches in the northern Territory (occurring in the Yinberrie Hills north of Katherine). The project will undertake site based observation on breeding occupancy and dry season population counts at waterholes at Yinberrie Hills. The Gouldian Finch has had a declining populations at Yinberrie Hills (in 1996 400 birds were counted and the last count in 2013 235 were counted at Yinberrie) as a result of fragmented habitat and landscape management changes specifically fire regimes. Data collected by the Green Army team will contribute to the ongoing management of the Gouldian Finch.
Project ID: E16110710381
Anticipated Start Date: 11/09/2017
This project is designed to protect and improve habitat and reduce threats to threatened local native fauna, within the greater Darwin area. The project will undertake a range of community engagement, environmental monitoring and on ground activities that focus on protecting the Black-footed Tree-rat, Partridge Pigeon and Northern Quoll. The project will also provide Green Army participants with the ability to gain and improve skills in horticulture and land management activities, community engagement, and flora and fauna surveying techniques, while contributing towards improved habitat quality, protection and restoration of remnant vegetation across the greater Darwin.
