Coastal Weed Strategy

An 18 month project to implement the Coastal Weed Strategy has wrapped up, but its legacy will be long felt in the region. The strategy helped to deliver a collaborative effort of weed control over 150 hectares and across 40 sites throughout the region's coastal zone. The works have been mapped and evaluated and outcomes integrated into the new 2010-2015 Regional Weed Management Strategy.

Cradle Coast Regional Weed Management Strategy

This strategy has been developed by the Regional Weeds Advisory Group as the principal framework for weed management in the Cradle Coast region. It is based on a foundation strategy created in 2005 and outlines actions achievable within the next five year period from 2010-2015.

Controlling Weeds of Regional and National Significance

A key focus of controlling weeds of regional and national significance is the coordination of regional weed works - at the education and awareness level, in the implementation of on-ground works and by sharing outcomes among stakeholders.

Leading the way with Ecosystem Services

Cradle Coast NRM is leading the nation in its use of ecosystem services as a model for defining natural resource management priorities, incentives for works and measurements for success. Ecosystem services reflect the way living things and environments are naturally connected and how they interact to deliver a wide range of benefits to the region. These benefits underpin the economy and the quality of life enjoyed by people living in and visiting the area.

Mapping 'Henty Line' Gorse

The land around the Henty Main Road in Zeehan had been severely degraded by an invasion of gorse growing as a monoculture and smothering native vegetation species. The West Coast Weed and Fire Management Group supported by Cradle Coast NRM undertook control works on 212.5 hectares or gorse contaminated land, continuing a history of planned weed control in this area.

Mapping Threatened Plants

The Vale of Belvoir, near Cradle Mountain, comprises diverse grasslands, wetlands and rare limestone geology. Records indicated that this unique environment was home to several threatened plants so a joint Cradle Coast NRM, Tasmanian Land Conservancy, State Government Threatened Species Unit and Threatened Plants Tasmania survey was established to map the area's plant species.
