The NSW Office of Environment & Heritage has identified 67 animals in the south-west slopes region of NSW that are threatened with extinction. You can see the List of Threatened Species in the Wildlife panel below*.
You can watch the time-lapse video of the establishment and growth of our “Lothlorien” micro-forest in the panel below, from cleared paddocks to a young forest / woodland in 10 years. The planting includes native trees and shrubs endemic to the area that will provide habitat over time for the threatened wildlife in the region.
The planting is located on a steep hilly site that has been virtually completely cleared of vegetation. This site acts as a recharge area for groundwater so the planting will also assist with managing rising water tables (and salinity) in the surrounding lower ground – as the trees will take up the groundwater reducing the amount that travels down the slope to the lower areas.
*We acknowledge and thank the NSW Office of Environment & Heritage for the provision of threatened species information in this website.
