Private Land Conservation

Vegetation Conservation 

Native flowers

Council assists landholders to retain remnant threatened ecological communities (TECs) and other priority native vegetation on their property with the aim of conserving wildlife habitat and to create connected corridors within the shire. Investment is guided by the Private Land Biodiversity Conservation Strategic Plan (see link below). 

This Environment Levy funded program is for private property that is registered with Land for Wildlife and that has two hectares or more of high value conservation land or is land that is situated on a primary or secondary priority biodiversity corridor.

Landholders receive free technical advice including detailed flora surveys, access to wildlife camera traps for native fauna and feral animal monitoring and other technical advice. Opportunities for on-ground projects funding will be made available to interested landholders such as the NSW Biodiversity Conservation Trust Conservation Partners Program.
