Funding to protect and restore State’s natural assets

  • $7.75 million for natural resource management (NRM) in Western Australia
  • Funds to support 111 community projects around the State

The McGowan Government today announced 111 successful projects around the State will share in $7.75 million to help protect and enhance the environment.

The Community Stewardship Grants will support projects across Perth and regional Western Australia to help restore natural areas, conserve WA’s biodiversity and build the capability of natural resource management groups.

Projects range from cleaning up plastics from the South Coast to the protection of culturally and ecologically significant wetlands in the State’s north; supporting breeding and the future survival of black cockatoos; controlling feral animals and invasive weeds; regenerative agriculture; restoring threatened ecological communities, including the tuart forests of WA’s south-west; and wildlife corridor revegetation.
