Eurardy Reserve, WA

NANDA COUNTRY​

Eurardy Reserve is located approximately 570 kilometres north of Perth and extends across more than 30,000 hectares of Nanda country. Formerly a pastoral station, Eurardy was purchased by Bush Heritage Australia in 2005 with the aim to protect biodiversity and revegetate cleared areas. Eurardy is located in one of only 36 global biodiversity hotspots and is home to more than 500 native plant species, including five nationally endangered or vulnerable species. The Reserve forms a crucial ecological link between Kalbarri National Park and Toolong Nature Reserve.

We are working in partnership with Bush Heritage Australia to restore 1,350 hectares of cleared land with a mix of native trees and shrubs. Decades of extensive grazing has changed the landscape and entire ecosystems have been modified. The aim of this project is to restore vegetation and protect the land from further degradation and loss of habitat. 

Since 2019, we have planted more than 397,000 seedlings across the Reserve; primarily on the red soils areas. Planting will now move towards the yellow sandplain soils of the Reserve. Although this area will sequester less carbon per hectare, the level of biodiversity will be significantly higher. This area is more technically difficult to plant; particularly with regards to seed propagation, climate and soil moisture retention. We have begun to trial the propagation of several new species, as well as alternative planting techniques to ensure the restoration of this area is a success.
