Natural Resources Kangaroo Island (NRKI) assists community groups and individual land managers to develop proposals and seek funding for projects that focus on improving natural resources on KI.
At certain times of the year, different funding opportunities are available for community groups working with natural resources on KI. NRKI staff can help community groups and individuals develop project proposals and apply for available grants.
Projects can focus on:
- investigating, monitoring and protecting native species, ecosystems and their threats
- trialling and demonstrating new technologies and management techniques which improve the health of natural resources
- raising awareness of natural resource issues
- on-ground actions that improve the health of and reduce threats to natural resources
- fencing existing native (remnant) vegetation in blocks to help prevent nutrient loss and protect from grazing livestock
- fencing to protect revegetation projects from grazing livestock
- revegetation (planting native trees and shrubs) to extend existing vegetation, revegetate salt patches, around lagoons and along creek lines etc.
- water point relocation to move stock watering points out of streams to prevent nutrient loss and minimise in-stream sedimentation and eutrophication
- stock and/or vehicle crossings to minimise in-stream eutrophication and sedimentation and to improve connectivity of aquatic ecosystems by allowing the passage of fish and other aquatic fauna.
If you would like help to plan your project and apply for grants please contact NRKI.
There are alternative SA government grants and funding opportunities available to assist councils, organisations and individuals with managing our state’s natural resources.
