GeoLINK undertook an Aquatic Habitat Rehabilitation for the Severn River Bank Stabilisation project. Fallen trees and boulders, known as snags, are a major ecological and structural element of our waterways. Without snags, the habitat of our native fish is at risk.
By reintroducing snags into the Severn River, we hoped to boost the habitat for small and large native fish. Also, some threatened species were at risk of losing their habit, therefore it was vital this project was a success.
We planned, managed and coordinated the sourcing of suitable logs. We then had them installed in a reach of the Severn River and finally, created a new fish breeding habitat.
