The Moore Catchment Council are celebrating once again with the recent announcement of the state NRM funding favouring one of their projects.
The $5 million on offer was highly contested attracting 177 submissions, with the MCCs ‘Recovery and Protection of the Moore River Catchment’s Threatened Natural Assets’ being one of 51 successful applications. The project was awarded $199,800 to help aid and encourage land managers in the Moore river catchment (which stretches from Perenjori to Gingin) to protect and recover riparian zones as well as protect threatened important native vegetation. Rachel Walmsley of the MCC who wrote the application says ‘everyone at MCC is thrilled that we have received this funding. The iconic Moore river is a natural, social and economic asset that needs managing in ways which will protect it from continued stock damage, salinity and degradation so that it can be enjoyed by everyone for many years to come.’ More news regarding this project and incentives on offer will follow.
