Construction has nearly completed on the 4.3km predator proof fence to create a 111 hectare conservation enclosure on Balijup Farm, in Gondwana Link’s Stirlings to Forest section. Once completed, and emptied of foxes and cats (now there’s a job!) the enclosure will immediately provide safer breeding habitat for a number of birds and then be used to build up numbers of mammals lost from the area – a critical step in a wider recovery.
