Is is too late to restore our diverse and beautiful box-gum grassy woodland? South-eastern Australia's box-gum grassy woodlands are a critically endangered ecological community - over 92% has been cleared and most remaining woodland is degraded. 'Ecosystem engineers' such as bettongs and bandicoots, which once ensured healthy soild for plants, and other animals are long gone.
Are these woodlands destined for extinction? or could future generations experience a restored ecosystem abounding in wildlife not seen for over a century?
This and other questions are being investigated by an exciting research and restoration partnership between The Australian National University and the Australian Capital Territory Government in the Mulligans Flat and Goorooyarroo Nature Reserves. This film describes the genesis, establishment and long-term vision for this unique and inspiring ecolgical restoration project which aims to change conservation thinking.
