OneFortyOne partners with Nature Glenelg Trust to create Mount Burr Swamp Restoration Reserve

22 Aug 16


OneFortyOne Plantations has partnered with charitable Nature Glenelg Trust (NGT) to restore habitat and re-establish wetlands at Mount Burr.

The Mount Burr Habitat Restoration Reserve project will again make the 300 hectare site habitable for at least six nationally threatened species over the next 10-15 years. As the wetlands develop, it will also become another drawcard for locals and visitors to the south east.

OneFortyOne will manage and harvest 35 hectares of pine trees on the site, with NGT later converting that area back to native vegetation.

We are pleased to be involved in project that complements our commitment to environmental outcomes that benefit people living in the Green Triangle region.

OneFortyOne acknowledges the Traditional Custodians of Country throughout Australia and their deep connections to land, water, and community. We pay our respect to Elders past and present and extend that respect to all First Nations people today.

In Aotearoa New Zealand, Māori communities have a strong spiritual connection between people and the land – the wellbeing of one sustains the wellbeing of the other. We strive to build meaningful relationships with iwi as tangata whenua (people of the land/region), to be responsible intergenerational kaitiaki (stewards/guardians) of the land where our forests grow.
