Jali Local Aboriginal Land Council and EnviTE Environment are celebrating the successful implementation of a two year restoration project which has been undertaken at The Jali Lands (Ngunya Jargoon Indigenous Protected Area (IPA)) located near Wardell.
Funding from the NSW Environmental Trust under its Restoration and rehabilitation funding program was used to establish an Aboriginal Green team to undertake restoration on the site. Supervised mentoring of the Aboriginal Green team has focused on the development of individual team member skills on ground bush regeneration techniques, site assessment, plant identification, independent working, project planning, cultural site assessment, monitoring and reporting tasks. As a result, the Jali Green team has built capacity to undertake to biodiversity conservation on Jali Land Council lands.
'The individuals in the team have all really enjoyed restoring Country, including addressing weed threats to Endangered Ecological Communities in what is a regionally very significant habitat area on the lower Richmond floodplain,' said Richard Burer, EnviTE Environments' Indigenous Project Specialist.
