Monjebup Reserve is a Bush Heritage Australia (BHA) owned and managed conservation estate. In 2011, BHA engaged Threshold Environmental to develop an Ecological Restoration Plan for 400 ha of marginal farmland which reconnects the Corackerup Nature Reserve to a large swath of continuous, protected, native remnant ecosystem. In 2012 and 2013, Threshold built off knowledge gained from the planning, to implement some innovative and ground breaking restoration work at Monjebup North. This work included:
- DIRECT SEEDING OF 100 HECTARES (2012)
- DIRECT SEEDING OF 140 HECTARES (2013)
- 13 DIFFERENT VEGETATION ASSOCIATIONS SYSTEMS DEFINED AND PLANTED
- 148 PLANT SPECIES INCLUDED
- 203 SEEDLING ‘NODES’ OF SPECIALITY SPECIES PLANTED BY HAND
- 2,850 BANKSIA MEDIA SEEDLINGS GRIDDED OUT (30m x 30m) ACROSS ALL AREAS
- 824 BANKSIA CALEYI SEEDLINGS GRIDDED (30m x 30m) IN 2012 AREAS
- 16 HABITAT DEBRIS PILES CONSTRUCTED
- 184 FIRE RESPONSIVE SEROTINOUS BRANCH+SEED PILES BURNT IN SITU
The Monjebup North project restored marginal agricultural land back to a biodiverse mosaic of native plant communities.
