Waterbird project goes global with revegetation volunteers

Conservation Volunteers Australia, Richard from England and Tim from France, are busily planting Baumea Articulta reeds for the Schwenkes Dam Waterbird project. REVEGETATION works at Schwenkes Dam were in full swing in the final weeks of March with multi-cultural planters hard at work.

With the first planting this year of 10,000 Baumea Articulta reeds, the Blackwood Basin Group’s Project Officer called on the services of ‘Conservation Volunteers Australia’ to get the seedlings planted in a timely matter when the water level was at a height for optimal plant survival.

Team leader Klara, who originates from the Czech Republic and who has been with ‘Conservation Volunteers Australia’ as team leader for the past two years, had a team of an additional seven volunteer planters hailing from countries such as England, Japan, France, Costa Rica and South Africa.

The team was so enthusiastic and efficient that an additional 600 seedlings were planted on top of the 10,000 Baumea originally planned as well as some weeding of Stinkwort and a little bit of fencing to protect seedlings at the site.

“The CVA team were an absolute dream to work with, not only were their seedlings planted perfectly to endure maximum survival but they were a great bunch that connected on the base that they were all there for the same reason – to plant and create a better environment and to have fun and meet people,” Project Officer Sara Dulex said.

The planting is part of a holistic plan to create a habitat that will offer protection and a breeding site for water and migratory birds. More plantings are on the agenda in the coming months with various species.
