The Department of Parks and Wildlife’s well-regarded Land for Wildlife conservation program is partnering with NRMWA to help participants manage their bushland for wildlife habitat.
Land for Wildlife is a voluntary scheme to encourage and assist private landholders to provide habitat for wildlife in bushland on their property.
Land for Wildlife at a glance:
- It’s free: There are no fees. The scheme recognises the significant contribution made by landholders.
- It’s completely voluntary: Landholders make a personal commitment to the scheme. They can withdraw at any time they want to.
- There are no legal binds: Land for Wildlife status does not alter the legal status of the property in any way. It does not provide any right of public access or exclude multiple land use over the area.
- It’s inclusive” There is no limit on size or primary land use, which could include:
- farms and bush blocks
- local council reserves and roadsides
- school grounds and golf courses.
