Since 2008 the Foundation for National Parks & Wildlife, in conjunction with project partners, have issued over $1.3 million worth of Private Land Conservation Grants to a wide-range of landowners. These grants assist landowners with important environmental work that they undertake voluntarily. Find out more at fnpw.org.au/private-land-grants-nsw.
Applicants can apply from across the state.
“We understand how important landowners are as custodians of environmentally significant habitats. Many landowners go to great expense to protect these habitats. These grants offer financial assistance for voluntary projects that will improve conservation of habitat and native species on their land,” said Ms Jennie Morgan, Grants Manager of the Foundation for National Parks & Wildlife, which co-funds and administers the grants.
“The grants allow landowners to undertake activities such as revegetating sections of their land to create wildlife corridors, employing contract bush regenerators, installing nest boxes for local wildlife, or controlling feral animals,” said Ms Morgan. “All of these activities help improve habitat for native plants and animals.”
“If you have a conservation agreement or covenant on your property, we encourage you to apply! Applications can be submitted on our website until Friday 18th March,” Ms Morgan said.
