Instead of a degraded, weed infested and neglected buffer to Aquarium Passage, we envisage a full riparian vegetation community.
Instead of the region attracting dumping and illegal land use, we plan for there to be a protected landscape amenity.
In April we were successful with a Landcare Australia Coca-Cola Coastal Protection Grant for this restoration project!
Involvement from industry and the community is helping:
- protect threatened wildlife including nesting birds, mammals and marine species
- protect the mangrove-lined waterway from erosion and sedimentation
- prevent sedimentation and potential pollution from overall industrial precinct and roadway
On Earth Day, 22nd April, we launched this project. Local industries and our members, volunteers and friends gathered to contribute to the environmental and social health of this industrial region and the significant estuarine areas of Aquarium Passage.
Guests included the Federal Member for Bonner Ross Vasta and the State Member for Bulimba Di Farmer.
