Ngulambarra is located between conservation properties at Ngarri-Mt Egbert in the east and the Lawan Reserve to the west. As a result, Ngulambarra forms a key piece of the Wychitella Biolink and is reconnecting habitat for isolated populations of threatened species such as the Swift Parrot, Quoll, and the ground-dwelling Mallee Fowl.
We are proud to tell you that your forest is playing a vital role in establishing refuge corridors that are essential for the long-term survival of these species. These corridors will allow them to move across the landscape to find food, shelter, and breeding opportunities.
At Ngulambarra, the site of your Milestone Forest, Greenfleet is working with the Traditional Owners, Djaara people. At the same site, we are also supporting Djaara cultural priorities by ensuring that a portion of plantings include culturally significant food and fibre grasses. By doing this, we are restoring the land while providing potential traditional food crops that are climate appropriate.
On a site visit in 2022, Djaara man Jason Kerr, Welcomed the Greenfleet Team to Country and shared his knowledge about his family and the area. He also conducted a Smoking Ceremony, engaging the team in this traditional practice.
