The December 2019 Cudlee Creek bushfires have destroyed over 21,000 hectares, 84 homes and 21 properties.

As an initial response, the Upper River Torrens Landcare Group (URTLG) committee members began sowing seed into trays to provide replacement vegetation for the affected areas.

A social media post asking for assistance in the nursery and/or for growers resulted in over 600 emails offering help. Many teachers and school principals also responded wanting to get students involved. This project has grown and offers a practical way for the wider community to support the recovery process for wildlife, habitat and the people who live in these areas.

A decision was made by the URTLG committee to build an alliance and collaborate with other local “like minded” groups to further develop the Project. The Project’s aim is to recreate the habitat which has been destroyed and the participating groups have decided on the following name for the Habitat Recovery Alliance Project.
