Coochiemudlo Island forms part of an important environmental network within the RAMSAR listed Moreton Bay and provides habitat for a variety of native terrestrial and marine flora and fauna and contains significant cultural heritage values. Despite ongoing weed control programs, pest plants still remain a widespread problem.

Weed control must be applied in a systematic and sensitive way that ensures weeds are replaced with native species rather than other weeds. Partnering with Coochiemudlo Bushcare and Redland City Council, CVA will use this grant to run 11 community volunteer days on Coochiemudlo Island to remove weed infestations from 1km of coastline and replace them with native plant species to prevent weeds from re-establishing.

This project is a great way to network and gain hands on skills for a career in conservation while making a real difference to our environment.

Remember to wear long pants, a long sleeved shirt, enclosed shoes, a hat, sunglasses and please bring your lunch and plenty of water.

CVA Brisbane now has a scheme ID with Containers for Change QLD! You can choose to donate to CVA directly via our scheme ID C10181048 when returning containers at any refund point or you can leave your empties at our office at 333 Bennetts Road, Morningside and we will take them in for you!
