Deep Creek Conservation Park is the largest portion of remaining natural vegetation on the Fleurieu Peninsula and is home to an array of native wildlife such as Southern Brown Bandicoots, short beaked echidnas and Southern Emu-wrens as well as another 100 species of birds and reptiles. The Creek systems that flow through the reserves support specialised vegetation types and habitat types. The park also contains some of the last remaining heath and stringy bark open forest (Eucalyptus oblique) on the Fleurieu Peninsula and of She-Oak (Allocasuarina Verticulata), Pink Gum (Eucalyptus fasciculosa) woodland once home to the Black Glossy Cockatoo
This project will continue the success CVA has with our 20 Million Trees project creating stepping stone habitat for Black Glossy Cockatoo on the Fleurieu Peninsula at Wirrina Cover (10km north of Deep Creek) in the first year of the project 400 volunteers have assisted in the project.
This project would not be possible without the funding provided in partnership with Foundation for Naitonal Parks and Wildlife as apart of the Plant a Tree for Me program http://www.plantatreeforme.org.au. Through this funding we will focus on achieving specific outcomes related to habitat enhancement at Blowhole Beach through establishment of 2000 Allocasuarina Verticulata trees for food for the Black Glossy Cockatoos.
Even though the aim of th project is to provide additional trees for food when the Black Glossy Cockatoos return to the mainland establishment of, She-Oak woodlands will also provide additional food souse and habitat for other regionally rare species such as Firetails. This project is funded in partnership with Foundation for National Parks and Wildlife as apart of the plant a tree for me program.
Conservation Volunteers and Foundation for National Parks and Wildlife https://www.fnpw.org.au are extremely excited about this project and look forward to all the volunteers whom share our passion to making a difference joining us.
