Conservation Volunteers Australia’s Better Earth Team in Newcastle will be helping restore the Littoral Rainforest in Glenrock State Conservation Area for National Parks & Wildlife Services as part of an ongoing weekend programme.

A Littoral Rainforest is a closed forest ecological community recognised by its close proximity to the ocean and closed canopy.  Vegetation structure can range from low thickets in wind exposed environments to tall forest in more protected sites.
 
Littoral Rainforests are listed as endangered under NSW Threatened Species Conservation Act (1995), and critically endangered under the Commonwealth Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act (1999).

Glenrock State Conservation Area also contains threatened flora and fauna species, including the Powerful Owl, White-flowered Wax Plant and Magenta Lilly Pilly.Conservation Volunteers Australia’s Better Earth team will be undertaking work to help expand and restore the rainforest, and help manage threats, including planting 3000 rainforest species and controlling invasive weeds.
