An exciting day for our region and NGT – 1st Round Biodiversity Fund Projects announced

What a great day for our region! Today the Australian Government released the list of successful projects under the first round of the Biodiversty Fund.

I’m pleased to share the news that Nature Glenelg Trust has been awarded 2 grants, worth almost $2.3M over 6 years, that will benefit local people and our environment in the South East of SA and South West Victoria.

The first is a project to establish a community nursery to grow some of the plants that are “hard to get” but required for bio-diverse revegetation works in our region, and the second is a project that will help private landholders restore and revegetate previously drained wetlands on their properties. For more information, see the NGT project descriptions (on pages 12 and 13) of this announcement document: sa-round1.

We are very excited about what lies ahead because these projects perfectly express what NGT is all about; that is, working along-side people in our region, to make great things happen on the ground.

We will keep you updated on the official start of these projects through our website and the regional media.

By the way, if you would like to become involved or learn more – please get in touch.

A huge boost for restoring wetlands on private land in the South East of SA and South West Victoria
