    Carrs, Cappitts and Bunberro Creeks Rehabilitation

    This project will contribute to river rehabilitation in the lower River Murray by enhancing habitats within the CCB Creeks system as fish spawning and nursery areas, so they act as source populations for fish. There are few anabranches along the Murray or Darling Rivers with this potential.

    Pudman Creek Protection and Restoration

    The successful re-introduction of the Southern Pygmy Perch at a new home along the Pudman Creek in New South Wales has strengthened efforts to increase the spread and survival of this threatened native fish. The Southern Pygmy Perch (Nannoperca australis), is a small, attractive native fish once found in most areas of the Murray and lower Murrumbidgee catchments in NSW. During the past 25 years they have disappeared from most of their natural range in response to habitat degradation, particularly the loss of aquatic vegetation and associated macroinvertebrates.

    Boorowa River Recovery

    The Boorowa catchment is characterised by farms of various sizes (from 100 ha up to 5000 ha) including rural residential holdings and small regional centres. The main town in the catchment is Boorowa with a population of 2390 (ABS 2010). The area has a long heritage of fine wool production but this has been declining due to changing terms of trade since the 1970’s, and long periods of drought (Race et.al. 2007). Poor water quality and unsustainable land management have also affected productivity and eroded the resource base for future income and livelihoods both on and off farm.

    Murray Wetland Carbon Storage project

    Extensive vegetation clearing and altered land management have caused a reduction in the extent and diversity of carbon stores across Australia. Wetlands represent a major potential carbon sink with high levels of productivity and integral incorporation of carbon into sediments, as well as contributing to biodiversity within the landscape.

    Bottle Bend Lagoon Restoration

    Bottle Bend in New South Wales has become an “icon site” but is famous for all the wrong reasons. A bright orange, muddy depression surrounded by ghost white trees with no leaves – the smell of rotten egg gas. What went wrong? Acid sulfate soils buried beneath the wetland became exposed to the air during the prolonged drought, resulting in acidic water and the death of fish, trees and plants.
