Coorong Revegetation Project

The Murray River is the lifeblood of South Australia. Yet a prolonged drought and water over-allocation across the Murray-Darling Basin has left the Coorong, Lower Lakes and Murray Mouth (CLLMM) region on the brink of environmental collapse.

During winter of 2013, 2014 and 2015 EBSR undertook an extensive planting contract for the Department of Environment, Water and Natural Resources (DEWNR). Senior Media Advisor of DEWNR Morgaine Wallace-Steele was full of praise for EBSR. “The work being carried out to protect the region now will allow us to manage and monitor the refreshed wetland environment under changed conditions in the future.” Over the last three years EBSR have planted approximately 660,000 plants in a variety of ecological communities, including sand dunes and saline lake edges. “The collective aim of the Coorong & Lower Lakes Revegetation project is to improve the ecological features of the site, to deliver a healthy, productive and resilient wetland of international importance, as well as to increase capacity, knowledge and understanding across communities,” Ms Wallace-Steele said.

With the project being delivered in collaboration with the community and Ngarrindjeri people, the DEWNR spokesperson said, “this is an ambitious and complex five year project that includes work on terrestrial and aquatic habitats; building community capacity, skills and knowledge and extensive community engagement.”
