Gondwana Link

An exciting and ambitious landscape connectivity project in south-west Western Australia.
The Gondwana Link Project aims to reconnect and restore country across south-west WA, so that ecosystem function and biodiversity are restored or maintained. Its scope is from the karri forest of the south-west corner to the woodlands and mallee bordering the Nullarbor Plain.

Scope of the Gondwanalink project.

The project will repair some of the ecological damage inflicted by land clearing and unsustainable land management practices.

Our work in the region involves restoring and reconnecting fragmented habitats between the Stirling Range and Fitzgerald River National Parks.

The project was the first of its kind in Australia and is operating in a global biodiversity hotspot. It brings together many partners with complementary skills that benefit the environment and local and regional communities.

Our Chereninup Creek Reserve, Beringa Reserve, Red Moort and Monjebup Reserves all contribute to Gondwana Link.

Working in partnership

Bush Heritage is a major stakeholder in this initiative and is responsible for buying and protecting areas of remnant habitat.

Some of our reserves also have areas of cleared land where revegetation work is reconnecting bushland.

Work in the Stirling Ranges to Fitzgerald River section of Gondwana Link is a partnership between Bush Heritage and the following groups:

  • Greening Australia works in partnership with landholders, the community, government and business to tackle environmental degradation in a practical, apolitical, scientific way. It has considerable experience in environmental restoration and is committed to large-scale revegetation with native species and the trial of native species for ecologically sensitive industries.
  • The Fitzgerald Biosphere Group is a non-profit grower and natural resource management group in the Shire of Jerramungup on the south coast of WA. It works with farmers, researchers, industry groups and federal and state agencies to address local production (i.e: diseases, pests and nutrient limitations) and natural resource management issues (i.e: salinity, soil acidification and biodiversity) to ensure the long-term sustainability of the agriculture industry and regional communities.
  • The Nature Conservancy's mission is to preserve the plants, animals and natural communities that represent the diversity of life on Earth by protecting the lands and waters they need to survive.
  • Friends of the Fitzgerald River National Park supports and promotes the appreciation, enjoyment and study of the Fitzgerald River National Park in a manner consistent with its high conservation values.

Private conservation buyers

Private landholders are contributing to Gondwana Link by buying and managing private conservation properties in the area. Eddy and Donna Wajon purchased Chingarrup Sanctuary in 2002, and Bill and Jane Thompson bought Yarraweyah Falls in 2012, becoming the first resident private conservation owners on the project.

Under partnership agreements we contribute to annual work programs on their properties.

Our reserves in GondwanaLink

Beringa Reserve spans 1,142 hectares and is 380km southeast of Perth in Western Australia. It protects species such as Tammar and Black-gloved Wallabies and habitat including mallee heath and moort woodlands. It's also an important part of Gondwana Link – a project to restore a 1,000km swathe of bushland from Western Australia’s southwest to the edge of the Nullarbor Plain.

Chereninup Creek

Chereninup Creek Reserve was purchased in 2003. This outstanding 877 ha property lies between the Fitzgerald River and Stirling Range National Parks, 140 km north-east of Albany in Western Australia and is important land in the Gondwana Link corridor.

Red Moort

Our Red Moort Reserve (formerly Monjepbup Creek) is the home of our field station in the Fitz-Stirling region of south-west WA. It's named after the priority species Red-flowered Corackerup Moort.
