Revitalising Private Conservation in South Australia program
Primary producers and conservation landholders will able to access expertise and resources for practical on-ground conservation work, which will improve the quality of their native vegetation and the financial sustainability of their properties. Good for farming, good for conservation!
Funded by the Government of South Australia, the program also provides existing and aspiring Heritage Agreement owners with an opportunity to access grants to plan and undertake important nature conservation works on those Heritage Agreements.
Nature Foundation will deliver this important initiative in partnership with Conservation SA, Livestock SA, Trees for Life SA, and Nature Conservation Society of South Australia. We're thrilled to be involved in this vital work with such an inspiring team.
The grants will be delivered through the following grant rounds:
- Small Grants - up to $10,000, for better managing Heritage Agreement areas.
- Linking Landscapes Grant - between $10,000 and $250,000, aimed at achieving landscape-scale conservation outcomes across multiple properties.
