Find out more about what our bush regeneration team do and get bush regen tips from Dave.
Our Bush Regeneration team works with community volunteers on a range of sites across the Byron Shire.
Their work addresses threats to our fauna, flora and endangered ecological communities.
All sites are areas of high conservation value.
Much of the regeneration team’s work focuses on weed control.
More than 160 environmental weed species have been identified at project sites, including weeds of national significance such as Bitou Bush and Lantana.
The team also targets weeds identified at a regional and State level as key threats to the survival of endangered ecological communities. These include:
A Bush Futures audit of bush land health has reported that 100% of the 350 hectares of Council-managed bush land is affected by threats including weeds, dumping and encroachment.
