Bellinger Fresh Water Habitat Education & Action Program

In response to a high level of community concern over degraded terrestrial and aquatic habitat along the Bellinger River, this project will educate riparian landholders and the general community about the value of healthy riparian vegetation. This project was successfully completed in 2017.

A recent rare turtle mortality event triggered an unprecedented inter-agency State government emergency response involving NPWS, DPI, North Coast Local Land Services and Taronga Zoo. To address habitat degradation, Bellinger Landcare will work with stakeholders to create a booklet & workshop series on best practice river rehabilitation, facilitating and promoting active landholder and community engagement in on- ground works to regenerate Lowland Subtropical Rainforest an Endangered Ecological Community.
