The coastal reserve at Whitfords Nodes has been heavily impacted by strong tides and storm surges which have severely eroded the beach and dune system. These erosion events have led to significant losses in biodiversity, invasion of weed species and ongoing accumulation of destabalised sand on the neighboring bike path and grassed area.
In 2020 CVA will be working in partnership with the City of Joondalup and Friends of Sorrento Beach and Marmian Foreshore to restore the dune system at this site through weed removal, brushing, and revegegation.
These measures will help to stabalise the dune, with the bushing and coir matting allowing seedlings a greater chance to establish as well as slowing the eastern migration of the dune into the park area. This site is also known habitat for the quenda, a prioty 5 species under the Wildlife Conservation Act 1950. Improving the vegetation cover at this site will increase the area of viable quenda habitat and help support this threatened population.
We would love your help as this is a very big job that wouldn't be possible without our wonderful community volunteers!
