Georges Riverkeeper has successfully secured a NSW Environment Trust grant to improve ecosystem and environmental assets within Oyster Creek Gully habitat corridor, located in Jannali and Kirrawee.
Recent research has identified the saltmarsh species Sporobolus virginicus as a primary food source of commercial and recreational fish species. The targeted improvement of the Georges River estuarine food web project aims to expand populations of S.virginicus into the man modified foreshores of the Georges River estuary in southern Sydney.
The Georges River Catchment is one of the most highly urbanised catchments in Australia. While this means that lots of people get to experience and enjoy the river, it also means that there are many different issues that are impacting upon the health of the catchment.
