Land for Wildlife
Land for Wildlife is a voluntary conservation program to encourage and assist private landholders to provide habitat for wildlife on their property.
Within the SWCC Region, 1,516 properties are under Land for Wildlife covering a total of 26,364 hectares.
In May 2016, the Department of Parks and Wildlife entered a Partnership Agreement with South West Catchments Council to work together to provide biodiversity conservation support to Land for Wildlife members.
Landholders who are signed up have access to professional advice such as:
- how to integrate wildlife habitat with other uses of private land to the benefit of the landholder and wildlife
- how to manage remnant bushland and wildlife on their properties
- the ecological role and requirements of native plants and animals
- how to include wildlife aspects into revegetation projects
