National Landcare Network Update

National Landcare Network Update

It’s been a particularly busy few months for our colleagues at the National Landcare Network.  There has been a strong dialogue with the Commonwealth Government on the need for more on-ground funding.

Funding Secured for Landcare

Landcare can breathe a sigh of relief with the recent federal budget announcement – secured funding of $1.1 billion over the next 5 years is very welcomed! There is however a net reduction in funding from previous years ($1 billion over 4 years and inclusion of new projects) but perhaps not as much as we feared.

The details of how the funding will be allocated are still to be finalised and we’ll keep you posted.

WA Landcare Network will be running a survey over the next month 

This survey seeks to collect the views of all those contributing to the sustainable management of our environment, lands and waters on how Landcare networks can support you in the great work that you do.

Landcare includes ‘friends of’ groups, agricultural groups, Waterwatch, Coastcare, Oceanwatch, Bushcare, Parkcare, environmental groups and others.  We are keen to hear from you whatever your landcare interests are.
