Lockyer Valley partners are working to conduct a rapid stocktake of flood damage in the Lockyer Valley to inform long-term recovery and restoration activities. This includes visits to affected landholders to check on their wellbeing and to assess the impacts of the floods on their property, local wildlife and bushland.
A new disaster recovery app developed alongside Griffith University is being used to collect and evaluate flood and habitat data, identify key threats to recovery, and pinpoint safe sites for the release of sick and injured wildlife. This data will in turn inform and support the development of a comprehensive ecosystem recovery strategy for the Lockyer Valley.
The project is funded through GER’s partnership with the International Fund for Animal Welfare.
