SOUTH LIGHTHOUSE DUNES LANDCARE PROJECT

This project was started in August 2007 to rehabilitate the dunes that were heavily infested with Bitou Bush and Lantana and help connect and improve the wildlife corridor along Lighthouse Beach.

This photo shows part of  the site with the Bitou Bush having been sprayed and mulched by Landcare volunteers. Seeds of Acacia sophora were direct seeded and seedlings of plants native to the area were planted to help stabilise the dunes. 

Maintenance weeding of feral species is carried out by Landcare volunteers to encourage regeneration of the area with native plant species, and there are now regular signs of native fauna.

This project is now under the stewardship of PMHC.

Before: Infested by Bitou Bush

After: Cleared and ready for regeneration
