Shire reserve audits


Boobook has undertaken audits of the biodiversity values of camping and water reserves, stock routes and shire roads within parts of the Maranoa Regional Council, formerly encompassing the Booringa and Warroo Shires.

These audits have identified ecosystems, wetlands, pests and fauna/flora values as well as providing a snapshot of current condition. Often the vegetation within stock routes, reserves and roads represents some of the last intact vegetation and wildlife habitats within heavily cleared parts of these landscapes. These audits contribute information to ensure the environmental values of these reserves and stock routes are identified and appropriately managed.

Boobook has provided environmental awareness training for Council staff using the results of the field surveys.
