Cape Life is proud to have contributed to hundreds of important landscape rehabilitation and biodiversity projects throughout Western Australia. Please see below a selection of some of these projects.
Ludlow, Gwindinup and Wonnerup Rehabilitation for Tronox Mining
Our company has provided Seed Collection and planting programs across multiple Tronox operations in the South West from 2015 – 2023. This long-term project has resulted in several RIAWA awards, demonstrating our capacity to provide successful large scale rehabilitation works with varying methodologies, while carrying out work safely and efficiently in a mining environment.
In partnership with Seed Shed, we have supplied native seed for Alcoa’s revegetation requirements since 2015. We have also provided a large scale revegetation service for 4 years since 2019, involving teams of over 20 planters across over 500 hectares each year. In this time, Cape Life has planted over 1,500,000 seedlings at this site.
Cape Life has been involved in remote site seed recovery programs in the Pilbara for over a decade (since 2012). These collection programs have ranged from Newman, to Port Hedland, Panawonicca and Tom Price. Trips have included targeted collections for specific species and projects, as well as bulk collections for large scale mining rehabilitation. Most recently we have begun harvesting native grasses which can be conducted in Autumn.
