Protecting the rainforest

Caring for the South Coast's endangered rainforests

· Environment

Dr David Bain and colleagues from the NSW Government Office of Environment & Heritage as well as the Botanic Gardens spent Thursday, 6 September, at Narrawilly Farm. The reason for their visit was to look at what progress has been made and what continuing activities are required to protect a patch of subtropical rainforest located on Narrawilly farm.

This particular patch of rainforest was fenced off in 1992 to keep livestock away from native vegetation and threatened species. Appropriate tubestocks, identified by Dr Bain and his colleagues, will also be planted, watered and nurtured over the course of a 10-year project involving Rob and the NSW Government Office of Environment & Heritage.

Milton Ulladulla's subtropical rainforest is classified as endangered, and this important project demonstrates how private landholders can work in partnership with the OEH to conserve endangered species in the wild.
