Australian Government representatives visited the Chain of Bays in late October 2011. The representatives from the Federal Environment and Agriculture ministries met with Aboriginal people involved in the Chain of Bays project at the Emu Farm in Ceduna, before touring several sites in the Chain of Bays where project on-ground activities will take place.

The second round of Devolved Grants were allocated during the 5th meeting of the Project Working Group on 2nd November. More details will be made available after the successful applicants have been notified.

There is only one more round of Devolved Grant funding, so it is essential that any landowners or community groups who would like financial assistance for tree planting, habitat protection or environmental education projects in the Chain of Bays, apply in this last round of funding, which will be announced early next year.

Good follow-up rains have provided excellent conditions for growth at our direct seeding sites. We are monitoring growth and condition of seedlings which are emerging from the 24ha of direct seeding at Point Labatt Road and Lake Tjeynya. It is great to see the emerging Casuarinas, Eucalypts, Acacias, Melaleucas and other species in the direct seeding runs. 30 different species were planted in our first season, and more seed from a wider range of species is being collected on an ongoing basis.

Trials are being conducted on chemical controls of Pyp grass, a South African native grass that is threatening to spread in dune areas in the Chain of Bays. We hope to find an optimal control regime for Pyp grass outbreaks in the Chain of Bays, and replace the Pyp grass with native grass species.
