Peron, May 4th and 3 other dates
The threat from weeds to Lake Richmond and Cape Peron and their critically endangered ecological communities has grown recently. Of particular threat is the invasive Buckthorn species which rapidly overtakes whole ecosystems and wipes out of our native vegetation.
After many weeks of removing and controlling the Buckthorn populations at Point Peron, we are now ready to plant new native seedings which will help to increase the biodiversity of the Point Peron Bushland.
Come and join us for one or more of these planting days as we assist the Friends of Point Peron and the City of Rockingham to conserve this beautiful peninsular.
South Perth, May 5th and 3 other dates
The foreshore areas of the City of South Perth are adjacent to the Swan and Canning Rivers and are important ecological corridors aiding the movement of fauna from inland reserves to and from the river system. South Perth contains the most extensive wetlands in the lower reaches of the Swan and Canning Rivers, with foreshore vegetation that is not found anywhere else along these rivers. The area provides habitat for over 74 species of land and water birds, including 14 significant bird species, 12 reptiles and 6 amphibian species.
Join our volunteers in removing invasive plant species to improve the growth of native vegetation. Volunteers will also be planting new vegetation to stabilise the river banks and prevent erosion. We will be returning to each of these sites over the next three years, allowing our volunteer teams to see the impact and transformation of their efforts.
Forrestale, May 6th and 1 other date
Forrestdale Lake is one of only three listed RAMSAR sites in the Perth Metro Area which supports a range of international migratory birds from the America’s and Siberia. The lake also holds two threatened ecological communities – Banksia Woodlands of the Swan Coastal Plain and Clay Pans of the Swan Coastal Plain, of which, a critically endangered native bee Neopasiphae simplicior inhabits. The native vegetation surrounding the lake also provides a critical food source for the endangered Carnaby’s Cockatoo and vulnerable Forrest Red Tail Black Cockatoo.
Decades of degradation from encroaching housing developments and climate change has led to a rapid decline in the lakes water level and deteriaration of surrounding native vegetation. We need your help to restore this important wetland through weeding, revegatation and nestbox installation! Join us in 2020 at this beautiful wetland by booking onto one of the availlable dates below.
Perth, May 8th
While Microplastics may be tiny, they are a HUGE threat to our marine ecosystems. Millions of marine animals are estimated to die every year from plastic entanglement and congestion. This includes microplastics which build up in the digestive system over time, which causes issues such as starvation, blood poisoning and bioaccumulation in larger predators over time, including humans!
Join us at Challenger Beach as we conduct an AUSMAP microplastic survey which will add to a national dataset on microplastics, helping us find and eliminate their source! We will also be conducting a beach clean-up for larger marine debris which will be recorded for Tangoroa Blue.
East Fremantle, May 12th
Our Wild Places Program conserves, restores, rehabilitates and manages land including land owned by Conservation Volunteers or land owned by the community including parks and reserves. Of particular focus is the conservation of remnant reserves of native vegetation and the ecological corridors which link these reserves, allowing flora and fauna to move between suitable patches of habitat.
The City of East Fremantle encompasses a 3.5km stretch of the Swan River and contains a number of remnant patches of native vegetation which contribute to ongoing efforts to create and link habitats for local fauna in urban areas in Perth's South West.
Conservation Volunteers in partnership with the City of East Fremantle are actively working to create and protect these corridors through revegetation plantings and weed management, as well as supporting river maintenance activities.
Join us in May to help us plant and create these corridors!
Kwinana, May 18th and 10 other dates
Our Wild Futures Program supports the recovery of threatened species by providing practical on-ground action to conserve Australia’s unique plants and animals in line with approved recovery plans.
The City of Kwinana is dedicated to conserving remnant vegetation and ecological corridors as habitat for the Carnaby's Black Cockatoo and other endangered flora and fauna. Ecological corridors are areas of local native vegetation linking local biodiversity areas, such as remnant bushland and other natural areas. These ecological linkages provide important feeding and roosting sites for the Carnaby’s Black Cockatoo.
Join one or more of our upcoming project days to help plant and protect native vegetation in priority bushland reserves or at coastal foreshore sites.
Melville, May 20th and 10 other dates
Did you know that the home range of a wombat is just under 25ha? Or that Powerful Owls require up to 4,000ha of high-quality habitat per breeding pair? These numbers are large, much larger than we might imagine are needed for some our native wildlife to survive and thrive. Our Green Links projects address this need by extending, reconnecting and recreating large areas of bushland habitat for a range of animals – and for plants too, that need places for their seed to spread and establish.
Cockburn, May 21st and 5 other dates
Perth’s wetlands and catchments are valuable natural assets, providing habitat for ecologically important aquatic and terrestrial flora and fauna. Wetland vegetation also provides an important filtering service, removing pollutants such as nutrients, organic and inorganic matter and some pathogens before the water flows out into our rivers and oceans! Quality wetlands equals quality water all round!
The City of Cockburn covers a large area of the Beeliar Regional Park which encompasses numerous ecologically significant wetlands including Thomsons Lake, Bibra Lake, Little Rush Lake and Yangebup Lake. These wetlands are home to hundreds of native flora and fauna species including the threatened Carnaby’s Cockatoo.
Conservation Volunteers have partnered with the City of Cockburn to help conserve these areas through invasive weed management, green stock maintenance, revegetation planting, fencing and species surveys. Join us in protecting these significant wetlands right on our back doorstep!
Perth, May 21st and 6 other dates
Perths' beaches are iconic and receive 250,000 visitors a year. The natural areas along our coastline have been allowed to degrade considerably over the years with invasion of weed species, decline of native plants and severe erosion from tides, storms and the public.
Conservation volunteers will be assisting the Southern Coastcare groups to regenerate these coastal environments with hand weeding, green stock maintenance and general site maintenance.
This project will be running from Monday to Friday, local volunteers can join us for one or two days or the whole week!
