Local Farmers, Stuart Goodfellow has created a biodiversity hotspot around his farm dam. The project included fully fencing the large dam, installation of hard packed stock watering point, installation of snags (large timber in the dam) and planting local native species. Stuart says, “We wanted to create a haven for wildlife, improve water quality and manage how we use water more effectively. We want to achieve a good balance between productive land and natural areas”.
This is one of 29 biodiversity projects that aim to enhance biodiversity and improve water quality around farm dams, wetlands, rivers and rainforest. This project is jointly funded by the Australian and the NSW governments under the Bushfire Local Economic Recovery Fund.
