Project ID: B0340004703G
Anticipated Start Date: 08/05/2017
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 will be in the tenth 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 along the West Australian southwestern coastal region.

Project ID: B0340019002G
Anticipated Start Date: 6/03/2017
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.
