Natural regeneration is progressing well on Bush Heritage's Beringa Reserve in the Link’s Fitz-Stirling area. The land in the foreground is former paddock, tragically cleared and cropped after 1998. Purchase of the property in 2006 was timely, with sufficient seed bank left in the ground for the bush to steadily return under its own steam, helped by some careful management to remove a few weeds left from its brief period under agriculture. The different density of regeneration, showing up as bands, reflect the number of times strips were ploughed and cropped.
