Ebert Park and Lockyer Drive Replanting  Project,
Bray Park, Queensland.
Stage 1 and 2 (2006/2009)

Moreton Bay Regional Council Community Assistance Scheme Grant (formerly known as Pine Rivers Council Community Assistance Scheme Grant) - $5,000

Stage 1 - The grant enabled members to extend an existing wildlife corridor on Lockyer Drive, Ebert Park in Bray Park Queensland.  Planting koala food trees and other natives provided additional sources of food and shelter for all native wildlife utilising this site. 

This replanting project increased the site’s potential as a wildlife corridor providing relatively ‘safe’ access for breeding and dispersal purposes. Five hundred native tube stock were planted including 125 koala food trees.

Stage 2 - In May 2009 KAI utilised its own funds to extend the wildlife corridor at Ebert Park along Lockyer Drive as far as Dean Street, Bray Park by planting additional koala food trees and other natives.

leafpoint Spotted Gum (Corymbia citriodora)
leafpoint Large-leaf Spotted Gum (Corymbia henryi)

leafpoint Swamp Mahogany (Eucalyptus robusta)

The grant included a watering regime of approximately three litres of water per plant on three separate occasions.

Our commitment extended to undertaking two years of maintenance on all sites which includes manual removal of weeds surrounding the plant and the use of a broad-spectrum systemic Glyphosate herbicide to remove weed and grass species that negatively impact on the growth of the plants. To see other replanting and rehabilitation projects please follow this link.

KAI undertakes a range of koala based activities including educational, the raising and care of orphaned koala joeys, public awareness as well as environmental and medical research.
