Wildlife Corridor Plans

Update 12 February 2022


Plans for the corridor project are to:very approximate corridor routes

  • Continue to find properties along the corridor routes where landowners are willing to have appropriate trees, shrubs and other plants established, with guards or fencing where needed to separate plantings from livestock grazing (supple fro our gran)
  • Continue to seek volunteers to assist with plantings and surveys. This will be via social media, flyers, and displays at public events
  • Attempt to fill in gaps in the proposed corridors involving either private land or roadsides along quiet, council-owned roads.
  • Continue plantings, especially March 2022, continue until May or possibly early June if weather is suitable, and re-commence in September
  • Continue surveys by active searches and motion sensing cameras in the hubs in Autumn 2020. See https://scenicrim.wildlife.org.au/projects/wildlife-corridors-for-the-scenic-rim/wildlife-corridor-plans/animals-survey-for-corridors/
  • Further workshops and displays, either physical or virtual
  • Revisit all survey sites in 2027 and 2032 to analyse for any changes in numbers of native species or relative abundance if selected species
