Project ID: E1630X710409

Anticipated Start Date: 30/10/2017

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.
