The Department of National Parks, Recreation, Sport and Racing, through the Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service (QPWS) engaged Ecosure to perform weed control works at Taunton National Park in Central Queensland west of Rockhampton. Through the targeted control of weed species, the project aimed to encourage the re-establishment of the endangered bridled nail-tail wallaby’s food source.
Works involved identification and control of targeted weed species within designated areas and recording of GPS points to map weed species. Ecosure’s ecological restoration team utilised an all terrain vehicle to traverse the National Park trails to locate and control target weed species. Field works were completed within the allocated timeframe and reporting was completed ahead of schedule.
