Restoring Hooka Point and its Endangered Communities 06-11-2017

Environment & Conservation Short Term Berkeley, NSW

About this opportunity

The South East Wetland Carers Network is a project set up in partnership with South East Local Land Services, WetlandCare Australia and Conservation Volunteers Australia. Our work will focus on the protection and restoration of wetland environments throughout the Illawarra.

Hooka Point is a regeneration site with small but precious remnants of coastal salt marsh at the mouth of Hooka Creek. Predominantly consisting of revegetation due to the historic use as grazing land, the area is a great example of what can be achieved in an urban environment. Our visits will target the removal of environmental weeds along the foreshore of Lake Illawarra, and facilitate the provision of habitat and connectivity to other remnant vegetation.
