Support Threatened Species

Our main objective is to conserve habitat for threatened species. We also work with our partners to design innovative programs to manage our native fauna and are at the forefront in developing new approaches to encourage financial investment to support our programs.
One of our main programs is the development and management of our nature haven properties. Nature havens provide predator-free environments for some of our more threatened species, usually through the establishment of predator-proof fencing and then the eradication of existing introduced predators such as foxes and feral cats.
More information on our exiting nature haven projects, as well as our threatened species projects can be found below.

Stony Rises Rewilding Project

Carbon Landscapes is working in partnership with Odonata, as part of their SEASONS program, to eradicate introduced predators, establish predator-proof fencing and manage our 1000-acre property that is dominated by Stony Rise Woodland, rock outcrops and freshwater wetlands. Already having a healthy resident Koala population, we will be ‘rewilding’ this habitat through reintroducing fauna species such as the Spotted-tailed Quoll, Southern Brown Bandicoot and Swamp Antechinus.

Gariwerd Restoration Project

Carbon Landscapes is currently working with Nature Glenelg Trust to manage our 90-hectare property adjacent to Gariwerd (Grampians) National Park. Natural wetlands, shrublands and woodlands are being enhanced through a large-scale revegetation program as well as the establishment of a predator-proof fence around the property. Planning is underway, in partnership with Odonata ,to work with their Mt Rothwell safe haven to rewild species that were previously found in the Grampians before they are eventually released into the National Park, in partnership with Parks Victoria.

Telopea Downs

Our most recent safe haven project, Telopea Downs is 800 hectares in size and is dominated by Mallee woodland and shrubland. Carbon Landscapes is working with Zoos Victoria and our other partners to explore if this property can be a suitable safe haven site for threatened species such as the Mallee Emu-wren and Malleefowl. Located next to the Big Desert National Park, the property will also complement other existing conservation programs within the Mallee region.

Trees for Koala Project

Carbon Landscapes is working in partnership with Heartwood Plantations and landowners with private forestry plantations, to transition low-value timber into high-value Koala habitat. Rather than clear low-value blue gum plantations, we are working with foresters to preserve these plantations, adding other biodiversity values such as mid and lower story indigenous plants and leaving fallen timber to create habitat for other native fauna. Eventually these areas will revert back to native habitat. We will be working with neighbouring community groups and landowners to monitor populations in partnership with research institutions such as Federation University.

Brush-tailed Phascogale Project

Carbon Landscapes is working in partnership with the Bunanyung Landscape Alliance and Friends of the Brisbane Ranges to protect, enhance and restore native vegetation that is the main habitat for the Brush-tailed Phascogale. We are establishing nest boxes in trees to allow populations to recolonise recently established native vegetation plantations and are working with community groups and landowners to monitor populations.
