The project aims to restore half of ‘The Back Paddock’ at Woodlands for the Eastern Barred Bandicoot (EBB).  Activities will include reducing rabbit grazing pressure by mapping and removing small warrens and herbaceous weed control.  In turn this links directly to increasing the population of critically endangered EBB which currently uses the predator proof fenced enclosure as a sanctuary.  An exclusion plot will be erected to monitor native grasslands.  Fence monitoring and maintenance along with pest surveys will assist in predator management controlling the chance of fox/cat breach into the enclosure.  EBB monitoring surveys will check for population growth and health.

Project ID: E156XX710300

Anticipated Start Date: 12/06/2017

Mount Holden stands large over the township of Sunbury. An extinct volcano, the site supports limited native vegetation and harbours some weeds, but also presents as an opportunity for creating significant habitat for small woodland birds and animals in an urban growth corridor. This project seeks to create a legacy for the Sunbury Township through targeted weed control and re-establishment of a Plains Grassy Woodland habitat across Mount Holden. The project team will also contribute to expanding the extent and quality of native vegetation along nearby creeks and vegetation corridors.
