The Project – Habitat Restoration for Threatened Species in the Mid North of South Australia

Native vegetation in the Mid North of SA was quickly cleared following colonisation, to establish one of the Nation’s premium dryland agricultural districts. Collaborative Conservation Action Planning has identified a set of realistic biodiversity management targets that complement primary production and support ecosystem services. The restoration of woodland buffers and linkages for threatened species is considered a priority action for the significant habitat remnant associated with the Clare Valley. In partnership with local community groups, this project builds upon previous work to establish back-up populations of six EPBC listed flora species, and enhance habitat quality and connectivity for a suite of declining woodland birds.
