Ecology:

  •  To improve biodiversity by planting appropriate native plants that provide a food source, shelter and encourage native species to use Mahoe Reserve. 
  • To restore plants that are locally sourced so that they are genetically as close as possible to the original plants found in this area, so that a small area of the original forest can be recreated.
  •  To use simulated habitat refuges to support species establishment. 
  • To provide a link between other fragments to create wildlife corridors that will in the long term, assist the preservation of vulnerable species.
