Conservation on private land is getting a big boost as we’ve just committed $3 million of funding to support native vegetation.
Over the next two financial years, the funding will support landowners who have already set aside, or who want to set aside, tracts of native vegetation on their land. This funding will implement practical conservation activities and help land owners to manage threats such as pest animals, weeds and bushfire.
Our parks system is an important part of our conservation estate, but we shouldn’t forget what good management of private land can contribute to the environment. This is why we’re backing private landowners to look after nature.
