In 2016, the Minister for the Environment announced a $5 million Threatened Species Recovery Fund (the Fund) to support communities to actively protect threatened species, leverage additional investment, and assist with delivering on the targets and action areas in the Threatened Species Strategy.
The fund builds on our commitment to supporting threatened species recovery through:
- the Threatened Species Commissioner
- implementation of the Threatened Species Strategy
- implementation of the Threatened Species Prospectus
It sits within the National Landcare Program and delivers tangible benefits for Australia’s threatened species, as well as helping to grow community involvement in their recovery.
Funding of over $3 million was approved for 19 projects across Australia and announced by the Minister for the Environment and Energy on 7 September 2017.
