Land for Wildlife (LFW) program
Are you interested in contributing to the conservation of our unique Australian native plants and animals on your land? Then the Land for Wildlife program may be for you!
Land for Wildlife is a voluntary property registration scheme for landholders who wish to manage areas of wildlife habitat on their property.
The LFW program encourages and assists landholders to include nature conservation in their land management objectives. The program is free for landholders to join and is not legally binding. Registration in the scheme will not change the legal status of a property.
As a member of the scheme, you’ll receive:
- Information about wildlife management
- Information about the role of wildlife and native vegetation in sustainable agriculture to control pest species, provide shade and shelter, manage salinity and control wind and water erosion
- Membership links and contacts with like-minded people
- Notes and news on particular management issues
- Signs for property owners who have properties registered with the scheme
- Access to education programs and activities.
Our LFW team will assist landholders with:
- Site assessments
- Advice on suggested management strategies and actions for the property
- Support and encouragement for landholders to carry out nature conservation on their land.
The Community Environment Network (CEN) facilitates and supports Land For Wildlife in New South Wales in partnership with interested local organisations. CEN provides statewide coordination and the framework for Land for Wildlife.
MC2T Landcare Connection are the Regional Facilitators for the LFW program in the MidCoast Region. We work with MidCoast Council (MCC) to deliver the LFW program locally.
All information provided by landholders is confidential to the landholder, MC2T & MCC and CEN.
