Dragonfly Environmental created some much needed, high quality habitat for one of Sydney’s most iconic threatened species.
Dee Why Lagoon Biodiversity Restoration
Dragonfly Environmental was contracted by Northern Beaches Council to undertake habitat restoration within Dee Why Lagoon Wildlife Refuge. Our team approached the project with the aims of restoring habitat for the diverse local and migratory birdlife and to protect high value, endangered communities.
Blacktown International Sportspark Wetland and Stormwater Harvesting Project
Installed over 60,000 plants into an area of constructed wetland and a stormwater harvesting facility including setup of irrigation systems and maintenance of the plantings for 6 months.
Penrhyn Estuary Saltmarsh Restoration
DFE were responsible for carrying out the world’s largest ever saltmarsh re-creation, undertaken in Penrhyn Estuary, Botany Bay, as part of works to mitigate the impact of nearby port infrastructure expansion.
Lake Gillawarna Water Quality and Natural Area Improvement Project
DFE gave technical input into the design and options for water quality and natural area improvement for Lake Gillawarna which had been severely eroded due to carp and ibis in the lake.
Moore Reserve Wetland
DFE were responsible for Moore Reserve Wetland condition assessment and remediation, restoring wetland from 10% cover of macrophytes to greater than 90% cover of macrophytes.
Green and Golden Bell-Frog Ponds
DFE created habitat for the endangered green and golden bell frogs in three ponds on site and were also responsible for the maintenance works.
Coolibah Reserve Wetland Design, Planting and Maintenance
DFE designed a wetland for Coolibah Reserve transforming a weedy puddle into a wetland dominated by native aquatic plants and surrounded by terrestrial native species.
South Creek Noxious Weed Control
DFE controlled Ludwidgia peruviana, vine weeds and juvenile coral trees along 2km of South Creek, Brookvale. The project involved 288 hours of work within the creek-line and riparian area.
Victorian Desalination Plant Saltmarsh Restoration
DFE propagated and planted over 30,000 saltmarsh plants from local provenance seed as part of disturbance mitigation following the construction of a desalination plant near Phillip Island, Victoria.
This site, based along the Cooks River in Wolli Creek, has recently undergone major development including the construction of several large apartment complexes over the last year. The existing wetland communities which include remnant saltmarsh were already substantially degraded and required regenerative assistance.
