Roadside Conservation - Capture Status (DBCA-034)

Areas of WA are among some of the most diverse in the world but vast amounts of native vegetation have been cleared to make way for agriculture and urban development. In some areas of the Wheatbelt, more than 90 per cent of the native vegetation has been cleared, with the flow-on effect being loss of animal habitat and connectivity between the remaining remnant vegetation. The roadside remnants now fulfil an important function in linking a fragmented landscape and enhancing wildlife dispersal. Roadside vegetation also meets other important roles such as: "mitigation against erosion and soil drift; "shelter for adjoining properties; "material for revegetation; "wildflower tourism; and "a sense of place or local identity for the local community".
