Incentives available to help connect Mallee parks

Incentives are now available for Mallee landholders in target areas to undertake on-ground works such as weed control and stock exclusion fencing.

Habitat surveys are also available to help landholders learn more about flora and fauna on their land.

To be eligible, works must help improve native habitat connections between the Murray Sunset and Wyperfield National Parks, the Big Desert State Forest and the Big Desert Wilderness Park.

Eligible works must be carried out within the two target areas which include parts of the following parishes: Koonda, Woatwoara, Purnya, Tyalla, Boinka, Tutye, Danyo, Gunamalary, Worooa, Wymlet, Kulkwyne, Tiega, Paignie, Walpeup, Timberoo, Baring North and Patchewollock.

“The areas have been selected because they provide important habitat for native species and will help improve connections between our national parks,” Mallee CMA chairperson Sharyon Peart said.

“This is a great opportunity for farmers to become involved in protecting important native habitat, while also getting support to make tangible improvements on their property.”

To be part of this program, Expressions of Interest (EoI) must be lodged by 5pm on Friday 13 March, 2015.

To receive an EoI form or for further information, contact Mallee CMA Project Officer Derrick Boord on 0428 316 146 or via email to derrick.boord@delwp.vic.gov.au or download from here.

All on-ground works must be completed by 22 May 2016.

The Mallee Biodiversity Incentive Program is supported by the Mallee CMA, through funding from the Australian Government.
