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 

 

 

Our latest event

NOTE: THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED
 

We’d like to invite you to the next Gympie region Land for Wildlife event.

When:  8am – 11am, Sunday 29 March 2020

Where: Nonie Metzler’s Jones Hill property

This event will be a great opportunity to meet and talk with other landowners who are already on the Land for Wildlife journey. Our host, Nonie, has spent the past 40 years working to revegetate a cow paddock and turn it into a home for wildlife, including koalas, and has a wealth of knowledge to share.

The morning will include:

  • A walk around Nonie’s property to see the ways she has created habitat for wildlife and her techniques for successful revegetation.
  • A demonstration on how to use the TOADINATOR cage trap that is designed specifically for the effective capture of mature cane toads.
  • An introduction to the Gympie Regional Council’s new Wildwatch Gympie phone app.

PLEASE WEAR sturdy shoes, long pants and a hat. You may also need insect repellent and sunscreen … and an umbrella if the weather’s not looking good!

PLEASE BRING a water bottle, a chair and a plate of food to share for morning tea. Tea and coffee will be provided.

RSVP BY 3PM, FRIDAY 27 MARCH.
