Anticipated Start Date: 10/10/2016

Albany is facing a serious threat to our biodiversity in the form of a highly invasive woody weed, Acacia longifolia. This species is estimated to cover 3000 hectares in the region and is expanding its range at 15 percent per year where it is left untreated. Green Skill is working with the State National Resource Management Office, the City of Albany, many government and non-government organisations, and the public, to coordinate strategic control to protect and conserve our native habitat. Green Skills is also in the ninth year of an eradication program for Senecio glastifolius. This highly invasive shrub threatens the West Cape Howe and Torndirrup National Parks as well as a significant expanse of coastal reserves.

Anticipated Start Date: 7/11/2016

This Heritage project is designed to protect and conserve the natural habitat of the Stirling Range and Porongorup National Parks in southwest Western Australia. Through the efforts of a Green Army team we will support community and state government efforts to minimise the harm from human traffic and weed invasion. Dieback or, Phytophthora cinnamomi, is a significant risk in the Stirling Ranges and Green Army work will assist to keep park visitors to the designated paths through good public access management.

Project ID: B0270007303G

Anticipated Start Date: 25/07/2016

The project will protect and conserve the natural and Indigenous heritage of the National Heritage listed Fitzroy River floodplain and increase the participation of remote Aboriginal communities in the Kimberley in environmental and Indigenous heritage conservation activities. It will enhance the environmental awareness of young people in remote Aboriginal communities while providing them with NRM skills and experience and enhance their work readiness, and their appreciation of Traditional Ecological Knowledge. The project will build the capacity of Aboriginal Traditional owners to ‘care for country’ through local provenance seed collection and propagation to use in the rehabilitation of degraded areas of the Fitzroy River floodplain.

Anticipated Start Date: 15/08/2016

The project focuses on the Avon River and seeks to protect and enhance its significant ecological and cultural values. Key infestations of three weeds of national significance will be treated to prevent further degradation of the ecosystem; infill planting will revegetate and stabilise degraded areas and improve connectivity; sites of Indigenous cultural significance will be recognised and respected; and maintenance of walk tracks as well as associated interpretation will encourage people to learn about and appreciate the environment and ways in which we can help to protect it.

Project ID: B0340022701G

Anticipated Start Date: 10/10/2016

The Swan Canning Riverpark is an iconic part of Perth life.  It is a popular site for recreational activities and is home to many local and migratory animals.  Some of these species such as the Carnabys Black Cockatoo, the Fairy Tern and the Chuditch are either vulnerable or endangered and need to be protected. This project will focus on the rehabilitation of remnant bushland and wetland reserves within the Swan and Canning River catchments in areas such as the three A-Class reserves on the Swan River. This work will increase water quality and biodiversity and will add to the habitat value of areas frequented by trans-equatorial birds and other threatened species protected under the EPBC act.

Project ID: B0340024401G

Anticipated Start Date: 10/10/2016

The project will provide needed conservation efforts in protecting the wetlands within the Perth Metropolitan area; this includes world listed Ramsar wetlands.  These wetlands are important ecosystems for various fauna that migrate and also that reside at the wetlands. The Green Army team’s efforts will revegetate, weed manage, water quality test, site prepare, conduct fauna surveys and remove debris from the project sites. The activities from this project will help protect endangered species such as the Australian Bittern, Native Bee and support the near threatened Long Necked Turtle as well as international migratory species. Revegetation and weed management will be key to the conservation efforts.
