Managing livestock sustainably.
We have assisted farmers with stream restoration for over 20 years, resulting in over 500km of riparian fencing and revegetation in the Geographe Bay Catchment.
Installing fencing to exclude stock from waterways has important benefits to farm management and for the environment. Farmers can better manage their livestock by keeping them out of creeks and bushland areas. This also prevents erosion and potential sediment loads being carried downstream. These actions will also beautify the landscape, prevent erosion and bring back local wildlife.
The majority of our creeks, drains and rivers run through private farming properties. Managing the riparian, or riverbank, environments along these waterways is critical to improving water quality and protecting local biodiversity.
Farmers have an opportunity to improve the health of our Catchment while also creating benefits for their own enterprise. Contact us to discuss potential stock-proof fencing projects on your property or find out more about our 2021 Stream Restoration project.
