Help Nature On Your Property
Bushland in the Margaret River region is valuable. In a largely altered landscape, remnant native vegetation provides a refuge for many species of plants and wildlife. It provides protection against soil erosion and salinity, assists in maintaining water quality, provides natural pest control, stores carbon and modifies climate. It provides diversity and beauty in a largely cleared and altered landscape.
Remnant native vegetation and associated wildlife face many threats including clearing, grazing, Phytophthora dieback, tree decline, weeds, feral animals and fire.
Nature Conservation estimates that around 70 % of land in the Margaret River region is privately owned. A bush block or an area of remnant vegetation on a rural property, whether small or large may provide a variety of habitats and be important as part of a wildlife corridor across the landscape.
