In the lead-up to World Environment Day, hardy volunteers braved strong winds to help plant 1000 seedlings at Dolphin Rd boat ramp foreshore in Busselton.
Many of the volunteers have participated in previous planting at this site and were excited to see the fruits of their labour as the trees mature. The native seedlings help improve habitat for the critically endangered western ringtail possum and provide habitat corridors for other local species.
This is the 4th consecutive year that GeoCatch has undertaken planting at this site. This year’s planting was designed to infill understorey species and peppermint trees to provide a home for possums and ground cover protection so they can move safely between trees.
This event was made possible with funding from Planet Ark Seedling Bank, support by the City of Busselton and delivered by GeoCatch.
