This unique project due to its size and the number of species planted, rehabilitated 100 hectares of degraded rural land on a site east of the Stirling Ranges in WA. This region is recognised internationally for its exceptional ecological significance, hosting vast array of rare plant and animal species. Over 200 native species of trees and shrubs were established through direct seeding and planting rehabilitating the area, locking in carbon, reconnecting remnant bushland and providing habitat for animals, plants and birds.
