Land for Wildlife is a voluntary property registration scheme for landholders who wish to manage areas of wildlife habitat on their property.
Land for Wildlife encourages and assists landholders to include nature conservation along with other land management objectives. Land for Wildlife is free to join and is not legally binding. Registration in the scheme will not change the legal status of a property.
In NSW, a community-based approach is taken for Land for Wildlife, with regional delivery carried out by non-government organisations, community groups and local councils. These regional arrangements are co-ordinated state wide by the Community Environment Network (CEN).
Local media outlet About Regional recently ran a feature on Land for Wildlife and the newly trained assessors across the wider SE NSW region. Keen new recruits bolster wildlife assessment for land owners | About Regional
