Project ID: B0340010102G

Anticipated Start Date: 5/12/2016

This project is based on a partnership between Sturt Upper Reaches Landcare, National Trust of SA, Adelaide Hills Council/Friends of Woorabinda Bushland Reserves, Friends of Mark Oliphant Conservation Park, and Deanery Community Landcare/Arbury Park Outdoor School and will be overseen by Natural Resources Adelaide and Mount Lofty Ranges. Supported by these, the Team will work on public and private land to: improve remnant Bandicoot habitat and linkages between habitat areas through re-vegetation; raise community awareness; and to provide 3 demonstration sites. Works will complement ongoing community and volunteer habitat restoration and protection works on at least 8 reserves and 6 private properties.

Project ID: A0000011903G

Anticipated Start Date: 06/03/2017

Native vegetation in the Mid North of SA was quickly cleared following colonisation, to establish one of the Nation’s premium dryland agricultural districts. Collaborative Conservation Action Planning has identified a set of realistic biodiversity management targets that complement primary production and support ecosystem services. The restoration of woodland buffers and linkages for threatened species is considered a priority action for the significant habitat remnant associated with the Clare Valley. In partnership with local community groups, this project builds upon previous work to establish back-up populations of six EPBC listed flora species, and enhance habitat quality and connectivity for a suite of declining woodland birds.

Project ID: B0340003002G

Anticipated Start Date: 5/12/2016

This project is a continuation. The primary objective of this project is to improve the quality of high priority habitats to enhance the long-term viability of a range of threatened species and communities. The project site is within the Mount Lofty Ranges which is recognised by the Commonwealth Government as one of Australia’s 15 Biodiversity Hotspots. The Region’s numerous threatened species/communities occur in highly fragmented landscapes that are continuing to be degraded, particularly by weed invasion. This project will address this by undertaking targeted flora mapping, fire mitigation and weed control in areas that are recognised as being critical refuges for nationally and regionally threatened flora and fauna.

Project ID: B0340011002G

Anticipated Start Date: 5/12/2016

This project will protect and enhance the biodiversity of the largest contiguous area of native vegetation in the Mt Lofty Ranges (which is recognised as a Commonwealth biodiversity hotspot) and involve local community groups, and public and private landholders. The project will take an integrated landscape approach with a focus on protecting nationally and regionally threatened ecological communities and threatened species. Areas will be protected through strategies such as weed control, re-vegetation, regeneration, trail management and threat abatement. The project will actively support, enhance and complement the existing efforts of numerous participants in the region.

Project ID: B0340013802G

Anticipated Start Date: 13/03/2017

This project will engage the local Aboriginal (Adnyamathanha) community in undertaking on-ground works vital to supporting threatened species recovery in the northern Flinders Ranges.  The participants will assist with works that support threatened species monitoring, surveying and control of feral animals, and weed management. These will support native flora populations, including those that provide a food source for the Yellow-footed Rock Wallaby and the Western Quoll. Other works will improve park visitor experiences and reduce risks to the public through maintenance of walking trails and installation of control barriers.

Project ID: B0340013401G

Anticipated Start Date: 17/10/2016

This project  will engage members of the local Indigenous community to undertake a diverse range of activities aimed at protecting and restoring nationally listed threatened species and Indigenous heritage values. The project will work in close partnership with other local organisations and will provide participants with valuable skills, knowledge, experience and contacts that will assist them to continue managing their traditional lands and waters into the future.

Project ID: B0340012402G

Anticipated Start Date: 9/01/2017

This project follows on from phase 1 activities and will continue to improve the condition of the endangered Fleurieu Peninsula Swamps through removal of invasive species and by increasing the connectivity of the habitat. By improving the condition of the swamps, other plant species with ecological threat ratings that occur within the swamps will be supported. The project will also focus on improving habitat for the critically endangered Mount Lofty Ranges Southern Emu-wren, which can be found in the swamps and dry heath habitat surrounding the swamps. The project will work with private landholders to manage the ecological community at a catchment scale and in areas identified as priorities by the Mt Lofty Ranges Southern Emu-wren and Fleurieu Peninsula Swamps Recovery Program and by Natural Resources Adelaide and Mt Lofty Ranges.

Project ID: B0340013502G

Anticipated Start Date: 23/01/2017

Warna is the Aboriginal Word for ‘land’ and this project  will build on the outcomes of Stage 1. The Green Army Team will continue to improve the condition and resilience of two high priority conservation areas on Eyre Peninsula, SA. These areas contain high numbers of endemic and threatened species and ecological communities. Key project objectives include: 1) enhancing existing threatened species priority vegetation stands through pest and weed management; 2) revegetating priority areas to create buffers and corridors for priority vegetation types; and 3) tackling the feral cat and fox problems threatening this bioregion.

Project ID: B0340000202G

Anticipated Start Date: 6/02/2017

This project will continue giving Green Army participants a range of skills and experiences as they improve the condition and extent of native vegetation and protect nationally endangered, threatened and regionally significant species, within the biodiversity significant Gluepot Reserve.  The team will gain skills in long term research monitoring through fauna and flora surveys, undertake feral pest control, camera trap monitoring, fencing, weed control for Weeds of National Significance, fire track maintenance, vegetation mapping and community engagement.

Project ID: B0340014902G

Anticipated Start Date: 5/12/2016

The Mount Lofty Ranges is a complex and biologically diverse region which contains numerous nationally threatened species and locally threatened ecological communities, many of which are declining and at risk of becoming extinct. This project builds on completed Stage 1 works and will continue to improve the quality of threatened ecological communities within the Mount Lofty Ranges through targeted, minimal disturbance weed control. This addresses one of the primary threats to biodiversity within the region. In addition, as a consequence of the Sampson Flat bushfire, additional erosion control structures will be installed and existing structures will be maintained to protect high risk areas from gully erosion and negative impacts to water quality.
