Community Stewardship Grants to boost local conservation initiatives

The WA Government has provided $7 million in grant funding to support community efforts to protect and enhance Western Australia’s diverse environment.

Community Stewardship grants have been allocated to 85 projects to support environmental projects throughout WA – 53 small grants for short-term projects and 32 large grants for long term endeavours.

In addition to grants towards revegetation, weed eradication and invasive species control, this year’s investment includes unique projects like audio recordings of threatened fauna, supporting the world’s first possum finishing school, exploring regenerative grazing practices and helping protect the world’s rarest marsupial – the Gilbert’s Potoroo.

The grants are a part of an ongoing funding commitment to the State Natural Resource Management (NRM) program.
