The ‘Gardens for Wildlife' scheme is administered by the Department of Primary Industries, Parks, Water and Environment through its Private Land Conservation Program (PLCP). The PLCP have recently launched a new web site which provides on-line access to the Programs regular newsletter The Running Postman. This newsletter includes a regular column for the GFW scheme.
The web site also provides an additional source of information and advice on native flora, fauna, and a wealth of other useful information.
The Private Land Conservation Program was established in 2006 to provide a single point of management for all of the Department's conservation programs that focus on private land.
The Private Land Conservation Program offers:
- Conservation Covenants;
- Land for Wildlife and Gardens for Wildlife;
- Monitoring and stewardship of covenanted lands;
- A regular newsletter
The Private Land Conservation Program aims to develop and encourage an integrated approach to private land management and planning that helps landowners fully benefit from the sustainable management of their properties' natural diversity. It seeks to achieve high level recognition of the biodiversity values of natural systems and the need to appropriately protect them and to support individuals who voluntarily manage these systems for conservation outcomes.
