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 build off knowledge gained from the planning to implement some innovative and ground breaking restoration work at Monjebup North. This work included:

  • 2012 – 100 HECTARES DIRECT SEEDED 
  • 2013 – 140HA DIRECT SEEDED 
  • 13 DIFFERENT VEGETATION ASSOCIATIONS SYSTEMS DEFINED AND PLANTED 
  • 148 PLANT SPECIES INCLUDED
  • 203 SEEDLING NODES PLANTED BY HAND 
  • 2,850 BANKSIA MEDIA SEEDLINGS GRIDDED OUT ACROSS ALL AREAS
  •  824 BANKSIA CALEYI SEEDLINGS GRIDDED IN 2012 AREAS
  • 16 HABITAT DEBRIS PILES CONSTRUCTED 
  • 184 FIRE RESPONSIVE SEROTINOUS BRANCH+SEED PILES BURNT IN SITU 

The Monjebup North project restored cleared agricultural land back to a biodiverse mosaic of native plant communities.
