Land for Wildlife is a national voluntary registration scheme for landowners who manage areas of their property for biodiversity and wildlife habitat. The program encourages and assists landholders to include nature conservation in their land management. The LFW program is free to join, it is not legally binding and registration does not change the legal status of a property.
MidCoast Council and Karuah Great Lakes Landcare are partners in delivering the LFW program in our area. There is a team of regional providers to help identify and assess your wildlife habitats, enabling your registration with the program. In NSW, LFW is coordinated by the Community Environment Network (CEN). CEN is an alliance of community and environment groups that actively campaigns for ecologically sustainable development.
What are the Benefits for Members?
LFW supports people who manage for wildlife on their property and provides opportunities for like-minded landholders to share their experiences. Members registered under the scheme will receive a property sign acknowledging their efforts to protect native vegetation and wildlife on their property.
