Eastern Bristlebird Habitat Restoration

Restoring endangered Eastern Bristlebird habitat by managing for grassy understorey.

A partnership between North Coast Local Land Services, ecologists, landholders, Landcare, Dept. of Planning, Industry and Environment (including National Parks), and traditional owners, this project brings together conventional land management (weeding, seeding and vegetation thinning) with traditional Aboriginal cultural practices such as fire to restore grassy habitat.

The project aims to increase the Northern population of Eastern Bristlebird by reducing habitat fragmentation across their known range whilst assisting with other broader working group efforts to increase their genetic diversity.

This project is supported by North Coast Local Land Services, through funding from the Australian Government’s National Landcare Program.
