FNPW's Community Conservation Grants program contributes to the protection of Australia's native species, habitats, landscapes and cultural heritage by providing funding for field projects and education programs that have a direct nature conservation outcome.
Utilising a 2019 FNPW Community Conservation Grant, KINRMG ran 6 Field Days over a two-year period, with about 15 volunteers per Field Day donating 2 hours of labour each time, to remove weeds and maintain native bushland as priority areas present themselves.
Heritage Estates is an important tract of natural vegetation that contains a wide range of species and allows them to travel between Booderee National Park and other habitats. Developing it would isolate the species within Booderee, making it a much less healthy habitat and ecosystem.
Rising from the Ashes - the Feather-leaved Banksia - the critically endangered Feather-leaved Banksia Banksia brownii will receive much needed conservation attention. Banksias don't live forever, they get old and susceptible to disease. They need fire to release seeds and recruit new plants.
Over the past 20 years more than 70% of the Manna Gum community has been lost and without intervention we will lose this unique and rare habitat type, along with the koalas and many other plants and animals that rely on it.
Thanks to your support, koala habitat in Redlands is increasing through community tree plantings. The plantings extend corridors within which koalas can safely travel, feed, find mates, and raise their young.
