Bush Heritage Australia’s Monjebup North property includes 400 ha of cleared land which is currently being restored to a biodiverse mosaic of native plant communities.
Monjebup North is located immediately adjacent to the Corackerup Nature Reserve. The restoration of the formerly agricultural land will reconnect the Reserve to the remnant native vegetation found to the south (protected and managed by Bush Heritage Australia).
The restoration of Monjebup North will contribute significantly to achieving the Gondwana Link vision.
Threshold Environmental was commissioned by Bush Heritage Australia to design a restoration project plan for the cleared areas at Monjebup North. This plan was completed in 2011 and builds on spatial, soil, fauna and flora information of the property. It also incorporates specific measures to facilitate the return, survival and successful reproduction of different fauna species, such as tammar wallabies, malleefowls, and pygmy possums among many other species.

The restoration of the first 100 ha in the north-west corner of the property was implemented by Threshold Environmental in 2012. The methodology used included a wide array of restoration techniques, such as seed collection, direct seeding, development of species-rich nodes and seams, planting of seedlings, construction of habitat debris piles for fauna, and plenty more. In total, around 130 different plant species were included in the restoration.
In 2013, Threshold Environmental will restore another 150 ha on the eastern side of the property.
