The Painkalac Dune Habitat Restoration Project will deliver improvements to the Painkalac Dune, a large and ecologically valuable dune and estuary system in Fairhaven.
Project objectives include:
- Removal of Tea Tree/Polygala/Sallow Wattle
- Management of Blackberry
- Revegetation in areas of monoculture
- Management of natural revegetation
- Fox control.
The project will include engagement with secondary school groups through our Environmental Education Programs, to assist with the application of brush matting and revegetation. This will provide students with an understanding of the importance of caring for dune systems, their flora, fauna and the wider coastal environment.
