Yep – we need more trees!
Yep – we need more trees! A ‘slightly warm’ day saw visiting UWA Restoration Ecology students hug the shade as they visited some ambitious saltland restoration sites on Peter Luscombe’s property in the Ranges Link section of Gondwana Link. But results so far are good, with Peter and Lucia Quearry able to show off some impressive growth after only two years, plus new ecological connections across farmland on the hills, and of course progress at Twin Creeks Community Conservation Reserve. Earlier in the week Neil Pettit gave students a great presentation on the fundamentals of ecological restoration, and the importance of focusing on restoring key ecological functions rather than just the species, which Gondwana Link CEO Keith Bradby followed with an outline of how that translates into the work happening across Gondwana Link.
