Summary

The project will protect critical aquatic habitats, enhance biodiversity values and improve connectivity of regionally significant riparian and biodiversity corridors across the headwaters of the Stanley and Pumicestone catchments in SEQ. This will be achieved through an integrated partnership approach of providing planning and monitoring support and targeted incentives to increase the skills, knowledge and ability of landholders engaged within existing community conservation networks, to undertake strategic on-ground activities which improve the extent, condition and connectivity of riparian areas and ecosystems with high conservation values. Partners include SEQ Catchments, Barung Landcare, Moreton Bay Regional Council and Sunshine Coast Regional Council.

This project will protect riparian vegetation, wetlands and flood channels along Stanley River floodplain by strategic fencing and re-vegetation to minimise stream bank and channel erosion and environmental weed control to enhance natural regeneration along the Stanley River. The project will also trial the effectiveness of collapsible fencing for wider application on sites subject to regular flooding.

Benefits

This project will:
  • improve biodiversity values by protecting critical aquatic habitats, and increasing the connectivity of regionally significant riparian and biodiversity corridors across the headwaters of the Stanley and Pumicestone catchments in SEQ.
