Cyclone Yasi

Due to Tropical Cyclone Yasi which hit the Tully and Cardwell region on February 2nd 2011, 130 kilometres of world heritage listed land has been significantly disturbed. Biotropica Australia worked closely with Ergon Energy to open the access tracks to enable Ergon Energy to enter the affected area in order to repair the electricity powerlines between Tully and Ingham and Tully and Kareeya Power Station. Biotropica Australia supervised a number of crews in the removal of debris. It is estimated that it will take at least five to six years for the forest in that area to return to its original state.
