Trust for Nature is working with landholders in East Gippsland to support recovery from the 2019-20 bushfires and increase ecological resilience in the landscape.
After the devastation of the fires, it is more important than ever to make sure wildlife have safe places to live.
One part of the project will focus on protecting habitat which can serve as refuges for wildlife. This will be achieve by placing a conservation covenant on the property and/or through fencing. Incentives of up to $1,000 per ha are available for landholders.
The other part of the project will focus on improving habitat for wildlife through deer, fox and weed control and revegetation.
