The coastal reserves of the Perth metropolitan area are under immense pressure from urban development and increasing population growth. This project focuses on one such area at Shoalwater Beach which falls within a larger project of the City of Rockinghams to increase biodiversity and habitat values within the coastal reserves of the whole Shoalwater Bay. This area is known quenda habitat and also hosts the graceful sun moth. There is also an abundance of bird life at this reserve including sightings of the southern giant petrel.
The dune system at this site was dominated by weeds such as sea spurge and rose pelagonium and had limited biodiversity of native species. We will be preparing the site for planting at the beginning of June, planting in July and following up with green stock maintenance in September and October this year to increase the biodiversity and habitat value of this beautiful stretch of coastline.
