The Mulloon Institute, situated between Braidwood and Bungendore, has been successful in gaining a NSW Government grant of $100,000 for a restoration project.
The project is one of several across the state to receive funding under the Government’s Restoration and Rehabilitation fund.
Member for Monaro John Barilaro has welcomed the grant saying “This project is designed to re-create wetland ecosystems, providing new habitat for threatened flora and fauna and threatened species” Mr Barilaro.
“Once a landscape of interconnected wetland systems, Mulloon Creek now bears eroded gullies. This project is designed to improve the creek condition, improve the gullies and tributaries, create wildlife corridors, habitat and food sources for local flora and fauna.”
The Restoration and Rehabilitation grants program was set up to help fund projects that assist in restoring ecosystems and protecting the state’s threatened species into the future.
“The grants program gets the best bang for the taxpayer’s buck because it brings researchers, the community, land management experts and the government together to protect natural landscapes and threatened species,” said Mr Barilaro.
