Habitat Restoration Program, Cape State Recreation Area

Client: Cape Byron Trust   
Location: Cape Byron State Recreation Area (Headland Reserve)

Wildsite Ecological Services has been actively involved in the planning, implementation and managment of the Cape Byron Headland Reserve’s Habitat Restoration Program.

The program involves extensive restoration activities within the 28 different vegetation communities occurring on the reserve, many of which are severely degraded through activities including logging, grazing, banana cropping, sand mining, residential development and recreation and tourism.

Over this time Wildsite has coordinated the allocation of approximately $200 000 toward the regeneration of more than 50 sites of high ecological and public significance across the reserve.  The management of the program has involved the implementation of on ground works, development of detailed annual works plans and reports, training and supervision of NPWS staff and volunteers in bush regeneration, and the management and restoration of threatened species habitats and Aboriginal cultural heritage sites.
