Conserving and creating natural habitats is one of the best ways to support our region’s native flora and fauna.

The Land for Wildlife program encourages private landholders to contribute towards creating a network of natural habitat that provide food, water, shelter and protection for all wildlife.

 

About Land for Wildlife

Land for Wildlife is a free, voluntary program for landholders who want to provide habitat for wildlife on their property.

The program provides a variety of support and resources to individual landholders including:

  • access to a dedicated Land for Wildlife officer
  • the opportunity to learn about native plants, wildlife and ecosystems, as well as how to manage weeds and pests through things like newsletters, how-to guides and workshops
  • the chance to restore degraded land, improve water quality of creeks and rivers and create wildlife corridors.

How do I get involved?

To find out more or to register your property with Land for Wildlife, simply call Gympie Regional Council’s Land for Wildlife Officer on 0447 051 329 or email environment@gympie.qld.gov.au
