Project ID: A0000011909G
Anticipated Start Date: 27/03/2017
While Tasmania has large areas of native vegetation, extensive tracts of agricultural land create disconnects within which native habitat is highly fragmented and continues to decline. Expansion of irrigation infrastructure and associated agricultural intensification further threaten remnant native vegetation and habitat connectivity. This project has identified suitable projects on private land to re-vegetate patches, such as pivot corners and riparian areas, to serve as future stepping stones facilitating biodiversity connectivity across cleared and intensively managed agricultural landscapes. There is a focus on increasing habitat for threatened fauna such as the Eastern Barred Bandicoot, which persists in the project area.
Project ID: B0280008502G
Anticipated Start Date: 06/03/2017
This project will revisit previous Australian Government funded habitat protection and enhancement projects. Activities include implementation of new vegetation enhancement, protection and establishment projects on private land in partnership with community groups and private landholders.
