Habitat Restoration

Thanks to the ongoing support from Billie Roberts and the NSW Saving Our Species program, FOK bush regeneration teams have been able to continue the vital corridor restoration works on the banks of the Wilson River south of Lismore. The work focuses on controlling woody weeds, specifically Indian coral tree and replacing them with endemic species. Forest red gums, a primary koala food tree are included in the species mix at a 1:3 ratio. Forest red gums are the dominant eucalypt on the Richmond River floodplain. Woody weeds are controlled using the stem injection method.
