Weeds. Lots of weeds. In particular the Tasmanian Blue Gum trees which were spreading rapidly and undermining the natural recovery process of the regeneration of native plants.
About the Project
In partnership with Conservation Volunteers Australia, the Wild Futures Program invested in 108 hours of Tasmanian Blue Gum control on Kangaroo Island by highly skilled weed control practioners.
Tasmanian Blue Gums were planted on Kangaroo Island for timber production. After the bushfires in 2020 they spreading rapidly undermining the natural recovery process of the regeneration of native plants.
As part of Conservation Volunteers Australia's Wild Futures program, the Tasmanian blue gum seedlings were removed.
"After the fires, Tasmanian blue gum seedlings began germinating in vast numbers. A huge effort has been required to remove them before they outcompete our native plants. Thanks to TWC, CVA has contributed to that effort" - Renae Riviere, Campaign Director, CVA.
