Hello Eco Super Foods Team, It is lovely to follow up on the developments from Eco Super Foods bush regeneration and tree planting outdoor team building day in the Gold Coast Hinterland rainforest.
The energy and enthusiasm of Eco Super Foods staff and employees putting the love of labour and helping conservation was exceptional.
Over 100 plants and trees planted. 1 acre of invasive weeds removed. Which is key in making conservation a priority and investment for future generations. The dry weather spell throughout March – October 2018 impacted approx 25% of the transplanted plants. However in perspective, a success of 75% is environmentally exceptional.
News since then is that further assistance to regenerate this special Gold Coast natural habitat has just been granted. Yahoo!
“Congratulation on receiving funding through this years Nature Conservation Assistance NCAP Program. It is important that we recognise that with over half the city’s native vegetation located on private land, you play a crucial role in helping to manage and protect the city’s natural assets”.
The property essentially has been locked up and given to wildlife to regenerate and recuperate through natural processes. With minimal human intervention.
Eco Super Foods helping hands, hearts and funding through team building efforts is greatly appreciated. More is to be done. However your input Billy Simmonds, has allowed our team to input a further 200hrs in removal of invasive species of Lantana, Bamboo and other non-indigenous plants to be controlled.
With over 150 acres connected to 720 hectares Gold Coast Conservation, there is still much to do in repairing and protecting these rainforest to dry sclerophyll forest environments. We are focussing on Increasing Koala and Native Black Glossy Cockatoo populations. As well as native habitats of endangered animals, insects and planst (flora and fauna) within The Gold Coast hinterland. One of the last remnant pockets of rainforest in close proximity to developments.
