Wompoo Gorge Lowland Rainforest Corridor Restoration 2012 – 2015

NSW Environmental Trust

Bush regenerators and landholders are restoring critically endangered lowland subtropical rainforest linking Nightcap and Goonengerry National Parks. The properties are located in a narrow gorge between the parks forming a significant wildlife corridor.The site provides habitat for 27 threatened species with a further 60 known to occur in a 5km radius. Implementation of systematic bush regneration works will stimulate natural regeneration in this highly resilient site and improve the health and connectivity of vegetation improving native flora and fauna habitat and enhancing resliience to climate change and other threats. Weeds, particularly lantana, are restricting natural regeneration and growth of native species. Field days will showcase works and develop community awareness.
