Land for Wildlife
Since 1998, the South East Queensland Land for Wildlife program has supported and empowered private landholders to improve the health of their properties and provide a natural habitat for wildlife. The program’s work includes removing weeds, encouraging the natural regeneration of native plants, protecting threatened species and controlling pest animals.
In 2004, Healthy Land and Water began coordinating the Land for Wildlife program in South East Queensland on behalf of local councils and the Land for Wildlife Steering Committee.
Twenty years on, the Land for Wildlife program is one of Australia’s most successful private land conservation schemes. In South East Queensland alone, the program boasts over 4400 registered Land for Wildlife properties which equates to over 7000 members, while over 200 new properties join the program every year.
