Land For Wildlife Regional Providers

LFW enhances biodiversity on private land and does this through Regional Providers. LFW is an entry level program and Regional Providers act as a conduit for landholders with support of CEN through exchange of information which encourage active participation of landholders.

Private land conservation provides landholders with the knowledge and skills to maintain native vegetation and habitat on their properties. This contributes to catchment based management targets such as reducing erosion, poor water quality, weed invasion and loss of biodiversity. It aims to improve the management of native vegetation, wildlife habitat and the ecological value of a region, at a low cost to participants.

Local experience suggests that many private landholders would not take a first step towards conservation if such an entry level program were not available. As a result, LFW complements the initiatives of NPWS (now part of DECC) in promoting statutory Conservation Agreements and Wildlife Refuges. It also complements incentive programs provided by Catchment Management Authorities.
