Would you like to be involved in the protection and restoration of threatened ecosystems?
While habitat restoration is firstly a process of removing the elements that degraded the environment in the first instance, such as hoofed animal grazing disturbance, the Mt Oak Community Association's primary ongoing rehabilitation tasks are weed control, feral animal control and weed control, not necessarily in that order...
The Mt Oak rehabilitation strategy is concentrated on protection and retention of existing habitat and restoration through natural processes and MOCA does not practice revegetation. The removal of threatening processes is usually enough for remnant Australian landscapes to recover, given enough time
It's a large property and the scale of the tasks is correspondingly large with many parts difficult to access
We have over 20 kilometres of boundary fences keeping stock out
Serrated Tussock, African Lovegrass, Vipers Bugloss and St John's Wort, along with Reynard the Fox and Roger Rabbit and his friends are the main obstacles to assisting these nationally depleted temperate grasslands and grassy woodlands to return to something like their former habitat values and levels of biodiversity
These restoration programs require ongoing funds and MOCA is a small self-funded volunteer group with very limited resources
We levy no membership fees. We make no money from the land
If you can contribute any amount whatsoever, we'll ensure it's utilised efficiently and with the greatest long-term effect on the rehabilitation, habitat improvement and continuing protection of the many rare or threatened species of the Monaro
Several of our supporters have a small amount automatically debited from their bank account every month. Even $10 per month is a big help to us and we've included our bank deposit details below for those that would like to do this or to make a single non-credit/debit card payment
