Conserving biodiversity in
Management activities include (but are not necessarily limited to) annual firebreak preparation and controlled burning programs to achieve specific vegetation goals, game population management programs to ensure that the overall stocking rates are within the short-term carrying capacity of the respective suitable habitat types, and that the species mix is kept in ratios suitable to utilising the full spectrum of feed available.
The feed availability varies in relation to the preceding season’s rainfall and this is used as a basis for consideration in the calculation of carrying capacities. Other options of vegetation manipulation such as selective bush clearing, and water availability distribution are also used where considered appropriate.
Other considerations are the control of invasive alien species, aimed at the preservation of the indigenous biodiversity. These operations can be very time and resource-consuming and, as such, need to be carefully monitored and selectively applied.
