Trust for Nature has been awarded a $200,000 grant through the Country Road Climate Fund to protect native grassland habitat for the critically endangered Plains-wanderer by working with wool growers.
Through the partnership project, Trust for Nature will permanently protect critically endangered Plains-wanderer habitat on a property that is also used to support primary production. Trust for Nature will also support existing covenantors with Plains-wanderer habitat to manage their land for conservation, work with Traditional Owners, and engage the local and broader community about conservation of this habitat.
Launched in 2023, the Country Road Climate Fund is an annual grants program that drives climate solutions in the Australian fashion industry. The Fund aims to accelerate and incubate grassroots projects that mitigate climate change and build climate resilience across four key pillars; Biodiversity, Innovation, Circularity and First Nations-led projects.
