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. 

This project will protect and enhance approximately 1.4ha, including spring fed streams and artificial wetlands in headwaters of the Stanley River, through the establishment of protective fencing to manage livestock access and strategic weed control.

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.
