Pest eradication

Our first established trapping areas are on the northern and eastern faces of the hills surrounding Endeavour Inlet. They are mostly on Crown land, including parts of the Queen Charlotte Track and the Anitmony Mine Track.

Other projects 

Wilding pine removal

Pine trees offer very little in the way of ecological value, and their rapid propagation means they can quickly take over an area. We're working hard to safely poison or fell the adult Pines in the Inlet, and keep on top of removing the smaller wilding pines.  

Native replanting

Endeavour Inlet is home to some beautiful native bush that has never been felled or cleared. However, the majority of the ilet was cleared and farmed. We're working hard to accelerate the regeneration of the native bush, and return the area to it's natural beauty.

Supporting native species

There are some fantastic native species that live in the Inlet, from little blue penguins to giant land snails. And while our trapping and weed eradication work is all aimed at recreating their natural environment, we like to give them a helping hand where we can.
