Remediation Works Update, 20 September 2017

Banksia woodland and complex wetlands systems, regrowth of tuart trees, the tiny pink fairy orchid, quendas, turtles and bird habitat – all of these and more have been discussed at regular meetings of scientists dealing with the rehabilitation of the Roe 8 Corridor

The Perth Urban Restoration Scientific Advisory Committee (PURSAC) has been meeting fortnightly since April to actively assist with the restoration work.

Made up of independent scientists and experts from four Universities, Greening Australia, the WA Biodiversity Science Institute and the Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions, the group will play a significant role in restoring the Corridor, as well as future restoration around Perth.

This week, PURSAC meets with Emerge consultants who are preparing the 10-year management plan for the Rehabilitating Roe 8 Working Group.

PURSAC will put forward a Research Strategy Plan, which embeds important science and community involvement into the final plan.

The scientists have identified that there is a unique opportunity for research and engagement that should be used to inform restoration efforts, beyond Roe 8, into the future.
