The Murray Malle LAP have carried out many projects in the region since the group was establised. Below are a few of our favourites

Supporting Native Seed Production for Biodiverse Plantings in the Murray Mallee:

 

Funding provided by the Australian Government

 

Project term – Six years

 

This project aims to reduce the pressure of seed collection on existing remnant vegetation in the region through establishing a reliable seed source of local provenance species across the SA Murray Mallee region

An industry standard, native seed bank has been established and managed to supply local priority biodiverse projects.

Billiatt to Sunset NP Linkage Project:

Partnership between Murray Mallee Local Action Planning Association and Greening Australia – Funding provided by the Australian Government.

 

Project Term – Four years

 

This project will improve physical connectivity and protect and enhance remnant vegetation in the Billiatt to Sunset district.

 

The project aims to establish 800 hectares of biodiverse plantings that are eligible for credits under the Carbon Farming Initiative. The revegetation works will take place on land situated between Billiatt Conservation Park and Murray Sunset National park in the SA Murray Mallee region.

 

 
Building Community NRM Awareness:

Funding Provided by South Australian Murray-Darling Basin Natural Resources Management Board

 

Project Term - One Year

 

This project has Supports land care groups and community members to build capacity and foster partnerships that address NRM issues throughout the region.

Three Oil Mallee and three Sandalwood best practice demonstration sites were established on farms in the SA Murray Mallee. These sites are spread throughout the region to illustrate how plantations perform under varying conditions.

The long term goal is to demonstrate the potential for Australian woody perennial species to improve production gains whilst addressing NRM issues. Sandalwood sites  include a mixture of native species, including some leguminous fodder shrubs. This not only demonstrates their value as a forage species but also creates vegetation corridors and help reduce the risk of soil erosion by stabilising sandy soils and creating wind breaks.

Building Resilient Farming Systems in the SA Murray Mallee:

 

Funding provided by the Caring for Our Country program

 Project term – two years

 

 
Mallee Futures Program

 

Funding provided by South Australian Murray-Darling Basin Natural Resources Management Board and Caring for our Country Program

 

This program saw the delivery of Terrestrial Biodiversity On-ground works and soil erosion management in the Murray Mallee LAP area.

 

This project improved and increased landscape scale conservation of priority woodlands in the SA Murray Mallee through  providing landholders with technical advice and financial incentives to carry out conservation planning and on ground works on their properties. Works included fencing to protect remnant vegetation and revegetated areas, threat abatement to control weeds  within native vegetation and revegetation.

 

Funding was also made available for fencing to exclude stock, earthworks to “level” degraded or drifting sandhills to allow planting machinery to access the area, and the establishment of perennial vegetation to stabilise soils.

Achieving Significant Environmental Benefit in the Murray Mallee

 

Funding provided by the South Australian Murray Darling-Basin Natural Resources Management Board and the Native Vegetation Council

 

This project has led to the restoration of native vegetation in the Murray Mallee for improved landscape function and reduced ecosystem decline.

 

This project has continued the work of the previously funded project “Achieving Significant Environmental Benefit for the Woorinen System in the Northern Murray Mallee” and earlier trials to determine the most efficient restoration methods.

 

This project aimed to restore native vegetation in the Murray Mallee to prevent further loss of biodiversity by improving landscape function

Murray Mallee Recovery Project:

 

Funding provided by the South Australian Murray Darling-Basin Natural Resources Management Board and the Native Vegetation Council

 

Project Term: One Year

 

This project has led to the restoration of native vegetation in the Murray Mallee for improved landscape function and reduced ecosystem decline.

 

This project has continued the work of the previously funded project “Achieving Significant Environmental Benefit for the Woorinen System in the Northern Murray Mallee” and earlier trials to determine the most efficient restoration methods.
