Price Delivers New Environmental Research for the Wheatbelt and Mid-West

Assistant Minister for the Environment and Federal Member for Durack Melissa Price today announced she has delivered new funding for Threatened Species research in her electorate. 

The funding, delivered through the Federal Government’s $145 million National Environmental Science Program, will deliver an innovative project to aid in the reintroduction of threatened species to revegetated areas. 

“Reintroductions to a safe haven free of introduced predators are highly effective at conserving threatened mammals and a key action of the Threatened Species Strategy” Ms Price said. 

“But we still don’t have a complete understanding of what best-practice reintroductions of species into predator-free areas look like.  

“This $185,682 project involves a suite of research based around the active reintroduction project at Mt Gibson, one of Australia’s largest and most ambitious mammal-reintroduction projects” Ms Price said. 

The funding builds on the outcomes of research conducted in association with reintroductions to Mt Gibson in the first three years of the National Environmental Science Program Threatened Species Research Hub. 

The research will deliver a best-practice process for reintroducing mammals into predator-free areas. 

This will help to increase success of this critical management tool for threatened species nationwide.
