Wildlife Habitat Fund

Restore  |  Connect  |  Protect

The Southwest Environment Alliance in partnership with landcare invite private landholders who live in the project area to apply for up to $10,000 of funding to create habitat for wildlife.

Landowners are in a unique position to create change and turn Australia’s wildlife crisis around. Being part of the solution is easier than you think. Results could be seen within our lifetime.
