Peel-Harvey Rivers 2 Ramsar: connecting river corridors

This project is supported by the Peel-Harvey Catchment Council through funding from the Australian Federal Government. It focuses on the protection of cultural and ecological values across the catchment and improves land management practices to reconnect wildlife corridors at a landscape scale. The project runs throughout the whole Peel-Harvey Catchment and Landcare SJ is delivering outcomes in the upper and mid Serpentine sub-catchments. This project will run until June 2017.This project is supported by the Peel-Harvey Catchment Council through funding from the Australian Federal Government.
