Summary

This project will reduce guinea grass to enable natural recruitment. Where natural recruitment is inadequate, tree planting will be undertaken. The Innisfail/Cassowary Coast community depends environmentally, socially and economically on the evident condition of the natural environment.

The Bulguru area is in the headwaters of the Ninds Creek, which is the last major tributary of the Johnstone River. The area is of primary significance because all the wetlands in the Bulguru area have a major effect on water quality, it is a recognised corridor/linkage, and the pandanus provides food for cassowaries.

Benefits

This project will:
  • reduce guinea grass to enable natural recruitment.
