If you’re a landholder, farmer or community group in a bushfire-affected region of South Australia, you can now apply for a Wildlife Recovery Fund grant to support the recovery of native plants and wildlife.
The Wildlife Recovery Fund – which has raised more than $400,000 so far – was established by the Nature Foundation and the National Parks and Wildlife Service South Australia after the 2019-20 summer bushfires. It aims to help re-establish habitat and support threatened and vulnerable native animals in SA’s bushfire impacted regions.
Applicants can apply for up to $50,000 for projects and activities , such as native plant regeneration, feral animal and weed control, as well as projects that support species recovery like native animal monitoring.
Researchers can also apply for grants for projects that improve scientific knowledge of habitat and native plant and animal bushfire resilience and recovery.
