Private Land Conservation Grants 2010

Humane Society International's Wildlife Land Trust, in partnership with the Foundation for National Parks and Wildlife, Paddy Pallin Foundation, NSW Department of Environment and Climate Change, Nature Conservation Trust of NSW and Diversicon Environmental Foundation, recently announced the recipients of this year's “Private Land Conservation Grants Program”.

 

Open to landholders within NSW that have perpetually binding conservation covenants covering their properties, and administered by the Foundation for National Parks and Wildlife, this program provides funding of up to $3,000 per year for 3 years to financially assist the management of biodiversity conservation activities on privately owned land across the state.

 

With a total of $75,000 available, this year saw 25 voluntary conservation covenant holders receive Private Land Conservation Grants for outstanding efforts on their properties to restore native vegetation, manage weeds, and enhance the habitats of endangered species. The next funding round will open in May 2011.

 

HSI congratulates WLT members John McCann and Lorraine Blyth of Casper's Hideaway, Mary White of Falls Forest Retreat, and Rosemary Von Behrens, co-owner of Black Ridge, on receiving grants this year, and we look forward to seeing the resulting environmental improvements from the funding provided.

This is the third year that the Private Land Conservation Grants Program has been run, and when combined with the $50,000 and $30,000 allocated to 21 and 17 projects in the previous two years respectively, totals $155,000 provided to 63 successful applicants.
