Several years ago, Track Care was approached by Tony Rouphael to see if we could help with something that he perceived to be a big issue for the environment of the Wandoo Wetlands and Woodlands. Tony is a Marine Biologist by trade but an avid bushwalker, especially in the Wandoo area. Based on the Track Care website, Tony thought we may be interested in helping to solve some issues that had been created by off road vehicles in the region. Issues such as the creation of layers of tracks across one area of our water catchment area which meant rubbish, car parts and oils/fuels were being passed into our drinking water; or driving through a wetland where an endangered species of a Western Australian native plant exists.
Track Care applied a three pronged approach for environmental management where an interest group (TCWA), a government department (DBCA) and a corporation (MTA) combined together to achieve common goals.
Lawrence Hull (TCWA) has been the leader and main interface for these projects throughout their entire existence. To be able to say thank you to those involved so far and encourage others to get involved, TCWA is offering a guided tour lead by Tony Rouphael, to have a look at the region and see some of the work that we have done. Others will be assisting in various ways including Lawrence and Graham, to make the trip interesting at many different levels!
