Land For Wildlife
South Coast NRM is delighted to be working with the Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions to deliver Land for Wildlife in the South Coast region.
Land for Wildlife is a free, voluntary program that encourages and supports landholders wanting to conserve wildlife habitat on their properties, which in turn protects wildlife in their local areas. By providing stepping stones of habitat and creating corridors of vegetation across the landscape, the long term survival of native plants and animals is enhanced. It helps to protect those species and communities that don’t occur in the formal conservation reserve system.
For the past decade, South Coast NRM has worked extensively with Catchment groups in the region to assist the local community to protect and enhance biodiversity through funding of practical on ground works. Activities include revegetation of the land, fencing to reduce grazing pressures, weed and feral animal control and management of the devastating plant disease Phytophthora Dieback.
Now we can broaden this work to connect landholders with publications and research resources, current grant opportunities, and local field days and events linked to increasing knowledge and appreciation of our natural world.
Delivering Land for Wildlife provides a fantastic opportunity for South Coast NRM to work with existing members and to meet new people interested in taking up the program. By working together and sharing knowledge and resources, we can make a great difference to the protection and conservation of wildlife in our region.
