The Malahoff family have joined the Land for Wildlife program with their 2.42ha property at Victoria Plains. The property is comprised of eucalypt woodland on sloping terrain (RE 8.1.4 classified as “endangered”) with predominantly eucalypt and corymbia species. This property is one of about 15 properties, that combined, make up a patch of endangered remnant vegetation surrounded by cleared land. For future works, the short term goal, is to restore a small creek that runs through the property, the banks of which are currently held together by an invasive species, the Singapore daisy. Tree planting and replacing the weed species with natives will reduce erosion, improve water flow quality and provide improved habitat and food sources for native species.
