We have successfully rehabilitated more than 35 hectares of land previously used for quarries. Since 2009 more than 50,000 seedlings have been planted across our site as part of revegetation programs.
The key to the ongoing success of our rehabilitation program has been the significant investment into research to help determine appropriate soil preparation and native plant species to be used in the area.
Revegetation on this scale represents a significant opportunity to protect and nurture local native flora and fauna as much of the original bushland in the area has now been lost to clearing for housing subdivisions.
We have achieved considerable success in establishing Tuart trees on part of the Muster site. Our Revegetation program has focused on establishing and improving both internal and external ecological corridors to improve movement of fauna and flora across the site and ensure long term linkages between larger natural vegetation areas.
The rehabilitation of the quarries, along with our wetland, has encouraged a vast array of wildlife to inhabit the area, including a large colony of blue wrens and around 400 rainbow lorikeets.
Our aims are to increase habitat and foraging opportunities and try to attract particular wildlife to the Munster area, including the endangered Carnaby's Cockatoo.
