National Landcare Program
The SA Arid Lands region has secured $10m funding from the Australian Government for land management and conservation Projects to be conducted across the SA Arid Lands region over five years.
The SA Arid Lands Board was successful in winning funding for three projects in the second round of the Australian Government's National Landcare Program (NLP2).
The projects range from one to five years for conservation and land management initiatives and will include SAAL NRM staff working with NRM Groups, landholders and communities to deliver the projects.
The first of these projects for the National Landcare Program was a one year Landscape Legacies project that had a sustainable agriculture focus. It captured and shared stories of successful soil rehabilitation from around the region.
Landscape Legacies - Recovering Eroded Land
There are more land projects planned for the region using National Landcare Program funding. These land projects will continue to maintain the sustainable agriculture focus. Once these projects become finalised, they will be released on the website to ensure land holders are kept well informed.
In addition to the land projects that will be featured in this section of the website, Natural Resources SA Arid Lands continues to work on projects involving feral animal control and the removal of invasive weed species. These project will improve conservation outcomes for threated plants and animal species. Details of these projects can be found under the Plants and Animals tab on our website.
