We want you … and your woodlands

Healthy Environments

The Eucalypt Woodlands of the Wheatbelt are unique and important and Wheatbelt NRM is working with the Australian Governments Regional Lands Partnership to protect them.

Do you have a special patch of woodland on your property that you are keen to conserve?

Wheatbelt NRM is calling for expressions of Interest from land owners who are keen to undertake conservation works on their land.

The woodlands are named by the dominant eucalypt type, for example, York gum woodlands. Our priority is a very specific list of woodland types (find pictures of the target Eucalypts at the bottom of the webpage linked below).

Financial support can be provided of up to $15,000 to help cover out of pocket expenses for conservation action such as:

  • feral animal control
  • bushland weed control
  • fencing
  • biodiverse revegetation

Submissions received before the end of February may be able to participate in our autumn release of the Calicivirus to help get rabbit numbers down.

To be part of the first round of projects your EOI must reach us by Thursday 26 March 2020.

To register your interest for the EOI please email Anika Dent at adent@wheatbeltnrm.org.au 

Be part of a program that will ensure our iconic Wheatbelt woodlands will safeguarded, not only providing benefits to you right now but for our future generations.
