Site Inspection of the Mullet Creek Biodiversity Restoration Project

Site Inspection of the Mullet Creek Biodiversity Restoration Project

The yearly site inspection of the Mullet Creek Biodiversity restoration project was undertaken this week by PEF directors Marita Macrae and Lesley Stevens. They were accompanied by Pittwater Council’s Bushcare Officer Karin Nippard. The report card is a good one.

In the upper catchments of both North and South Mullet Creek our contractors, Australian Bush Restoration, have completed their primary work and are now undertaking secondary weeding and maintenance.

The major problem area in the Irrawong floodplain still needs primary work, however, the improvement over the last 2 years has been substantial.

New tactics are being undertaken to discourage wallaby predation of tubestock, and there are encouraging signs of regeneration.

This is second year of a six year project to eradicate weeds, protect biodiversity and improve this vital wildlife corridor in the heart of Pittwater.
