New Green Army Team starts work in Bellamack – Palmerston

A new Green Army Team is working in Bellamack, Palmerston as part of the 6 month Project: Regenerating Native Vegetation to protect threatened species. 

Local residents expressed concern to local MLA Terry Mills, about the overgrown weeds near their homes alongside Crown Land conservation areas earlier this year. Mr Mills contacted our Friends of Mitchell Creek group and the Crown Land Office. We worked successfully together with Conservation Volunteers Australia (NT) to win Federal Government funding for a new Green Army Team.

The Project Objective is to protect and improve habitat and reduce threats to threatened local native fauna within the Palmerston Region.

Surveys of the the Black footed Tree Rat, Partridge Pigeon and Northern Quoll will  be undertaken to assist in their protection.

Activities involving the local community will take place over the next 6 months. To stay updated please see the Green Army Facebook Page.
