Restoration in Progress at Monjebup North

Ecological restoration operations are in now in full swing at Bush Heritage’s Monjebup North Property! Over the last couple of weeks we have designed, measured, and direct-seeded more than 100 plant species – through eight soil-specific seed mixes – over an area of 100 hectares.

Monjebup North is idyllically located adjacent to Corackerup Reserve, between The Stirling Range National Park (in background) and The Fitzgerald River National Park in the Great Southern region of Western Australia

In the upcoming weeks, we will complement our broad-acre seeding with several other restoration techniques, including chipping and mulching, transplanting grasses and sedges, and the hand-planting of over 10,000 seedlings of plant species difficult to establish through seeding.

This project aims to deliver 5 star ecological restoration with a focus on the return and survival of native fauna. Through the construction of “habitat debris piles” and the inclusion of a rich diversity of flowering plant species, we aim to provide improved shelter and food conditions for several local animals, such as the Echidna, Tammar Wallaby, Honey Possum and Malleefowl.

With luck on our side, the rains will continue to keep the soils of Monjebup North moist and supportive for germination!
