Hypsi Forest Project

Hypsi Forest is a local endangered rain forest type (type 1b) named after the delightful Musky Rat Kangaroo, otherwise known as “Hypsiprymnodon moschatus” that makes this forest type its home. Two properties in the Millaa Millaa area, known to be important for Tree-Kangaroos and with remnants of the endangered Hypsi Forest, have been selecte

Each landholder involved with the project receives a detailed report on the flora and fauna on their property along with a professionally developed property wildlife habitat management plan. Planting of 4500 trees has been strategically located to protect and build onto remnant forest and a very successful field day was held to promote the project’s program of farm habitat management.
