Project Area: C. Lake Victoria Main Barn Swallow Roosting Site ± 180 000m²

 Project Area C  

Description:
Shallow Lake 35, 5 hectares full of Phragmites Australis, alien vegetation starting to encroach along wetland edge with pepper trees and lantana. Aliens starting to emerge within the wetland.
Water exit chocked with bug weed, balloon vine, cannas, lantana and Triffid.
Sugar cane farming activity within very close proximity to reedbed.

Action Plan:
Remove aliens from centre of reedbed, this will be challenging because of water depths and sharp Phragmites, visibility once in the reedbed. Gaining access to the reedbed through densely infested areas.
Clean up exit from Lake Victoria and edge of wetland.
Re-introduce wetland grasses and indigenous wind breaks.
Assess indigenous forestation.
Once all above achieved - Request recess of sugar cane
