Regional Land Partnerships

The aim of Regional Land Partnerships is "to protect, conserve, and provide for the productive use of Australia's water, soil, plants and animals and the ecosystems in which they live and interact, in partnership with governments, industry and communities. Regional Land Partnerships is a major component of the second phase of the National Landcare Program. The investment for 2018-2023 will fund biodiversity projects focused on protecting rainforest, woodlands and coastal vine thickets as well as cassowaries and the golden shouldered parrot. It will also support the organisations to work with farmers across Far North Queensland over the next five years to deliver initiatives aimed at boosting farm productivity while improving habitat for native animals. These projects will tackle issues such as hillslope erosion and soil acidification, while providing workshops and programs to build farmer knowledge about soil management.
