Mt Barker has partnered with Landcare Australia and the Oyster Harbour Catchment Group to create the Ranges Link Project.
Our aim is to regrow wildlife habitats across the Kalgan River valley, between the Porongurup and Stirling Ranges.
Our proudest achievement has been building over 100km of fencing. The fence protects streams and remnant vegetation helping 50ha of degraded land get back on its feet.
We’re currently busy fencing another 30km of private land. Each new fence lets us inspect the area and see what other conservation work needs to be done.
The project supports species like Brush Wallabies, Carnaby’s Cockatoos, Carpet Snakes, Bardic Snakes, Western Quolls, Mallee Fowls, Firetail Finches, Echidnas and Blue Tongue Skinks that urgently need protection.
The group also collect seeds of local plants to re-establish native vegetation. These species include the Hibbertia selkii (Stirlings Orange Buttercup), Eucalyptus talyuberlup (Pretty Yate) and Dryandra ionthocarpa (Kamballup Dryandra).
At Mt Barker, we’re committed to protecting our unique wildlife. And proud of it.
