FoxDid you know that foxes are a major pest in our bushland area?  So too are deer.  However, there is quite a lot of 'friendly'wildlife as well.

Honours student Kirsty Pappalardo has conducted a survey of the wildlife corridor between the bushland on
Horizon Drive, opposite Peter Lightfoot Oval, the McLeod Golf Course and the Mount Ommaney Bushland Reserve.

Centenary and District Environment Action (CDEA) is a community environmental group which focuses on protection of the natural environment, public parkland and recreational areas, and the mitigation of urban development impacts in the Centenary suburbs and neighbouring districts.  A respected local community voice since 1996

Feral deer
Feral deer
There has been some success in removing the deer from the Centenary suburbs but it is a difficult task.  

They are becoming more and more wide-spread and are much bolder.  They continue to be very destructive to Bushcare Groups' revegetation and cause serious soil erosion in the reserves.  they have damaged many street trees by stripping off and eating the bark.  They have been the cause of a couple of traffic accidents.  CDEA feels that more funding and people are needed to address this fast-growing problem.  We will continue to lobby Council to rid the Centenary suburbs of deer.  The deer arrived in 2000.

Our area

Since 1991, the Centenary Suburbs and nearby areas have benefited greatly from the addition of new bushland and parkland areas.  We at CDEA are very proud of the large part which we have played in the creation of these new areas for the benefit of all residents - and our wildlife.  You can download an A4 map showing the all these new areas as well as the pre-existing bushland and parkland areas.   Simply click here.

Save the trees from deer damage with knitted tree protectors !

 Feral deer often strip the bark off native trees in urban bushland and also off street trees around Brisbane. 

Jindalee Bushcare Group, which restores large areas of the Mount Ommaney Bushland Reserve, is putting
knitted protectors around trees whose trunks have been partially stripped by feeding deer. This is to
prevent further damage to the trees and to save them from being completely ringbarked which would kill
them. So far, this experiment has been successful!
There are so many affected trees, that the group would  appreciate some help in knitting the protectors.
Get out your yarn left over from knitting winter  and start knitting! Or you can crochet…
