Land for Wildlife

Land for Wildlife has been operating in South East Queensland for over 20 years, supporting and empowering 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.

History of the successful initiative

The South East Queensland Land for Wildlife program was formed in 1998.  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.

From 2004 to 2019, the program was coordinated by Healthy Land and Water on behalf of local councils and the Land for Wildlife Steering Committee. This was made possible by the valuable support of a number of partners, including:

  • Australian Government’s National Landcare Program
  • Brisbane City Council
  • Logan City Council
  • Ipswich City Council
  • Port of Brisbane
  • City of Gold Coast
  • Moreton Bay Regional Council
  • Redland City Regional Council
  • Somerset Regional Council
  • Scenic Rim Regional Council
  • Noosa Regional Council
  • Lockyer Valley Regional Council
