Turtle nesting site at Woorim Beach enhanced by 2300 new plants!

The trees, shrubs and groundcover stabilise the dunes, improve biodiversity and provide a shield for light spill. This enhances the dunes, making them ideal for turtle nests. Local wallabies ate their way through over 1000 seedlings last year, making the mass replanting even more necessary.

By the end of Tuesday morning, the site of our Woorim Beach Dune Rehabilitation project was revitalised by the efforts of passionate Bribie Island locals, B.I.E.P.A – Bribie Island Environmental Protection Assoc. Inc and Barung Landcare, https://www.facebook.com/BarungLandcare/

Thank you to Terry Young MP, Cr Brooke Savige and Ali King MP for joining us!
