Swan Coastal Plain Biodiversity Recovery Project

Swan Coastal Plain Biodiversity Recovery Project
Running from January 2004 to September 2009 this iconic project, designed and delivered by Ecoedge Director, Melanie Strang (now Portman), targeted priority areas of remnant vegetation on the southern Swan Coastal Plain in Western Australia, with an aim to increase the amount of priority vegetation being managed for conservation.

Several Threatened Ecological Communities were contained within the targeted remnants, including Corymbia calophylla – Kingia australis woodlands on heavy soils of the Swan Coastal Plain, Corymbia calophylla – Xanthorrhoea preissii woodlands and shrublands of the Swan Coastal Plain, and Shrublands and woodlands of the eastern side of the Swan Coastal Plain.


The project involved:

Quadrat-based flora surveys
Fauna and bird surveys
Landscape interpretation
Facilitation of workshops and training events
Negotiation with landholders regarding management arrangements
Preparation of management plans
The design, coordination and implementation of on-ground protection and restoration works

In total over the five-year term, over 1180 ha of priority vegetation was conserved or saw improved management through the project.
