Landholders have completed amazing Numbat Neighbourhood projects including fencing to protect habitat for threatened species, weed control and many have completed planting seedlings to increase habitat for threatened species. An important linkage of two blocks of Dryandra Woodland had its old fence replaced to protect this important wildlife corridor and the landholder has recently seen a numbat very close to this linkage.

The Wandering Primary School is working on a red-tailed phascolgale project which has involved installing a nest box, planting to enhance habitat and weed control. A red-tailed phascogale has recently been spotted in a garden neighbouring the school!

Other projects include fencing to protect the Hotham River and the Fourteen Mile Brook which are important wildlife corridors near Dryandra Woodland, fencing to increase habitat of the East Yornaning Reserve and also fencing remnant woodland and planting to create habitat for threatened species in the shire of Cuballing.

PHCC appreciate the hard work that goes into these projects. 2020/21 funding is now available for landholders in the Hotham and Williams Rivers Catchment for eligible landcare and bushcare works. Applications close on 31st August.
