SWCC is offering grants for incorporated community groups to hold events that support community engagement in the conservation of the western ringtail possum, numbat, woylie, chuditch and malleefowl.
All incorporated organisations operating in the South West NRM region are eligible to receive funding. Local governments are also eligible, if applying in partnership with or on behalf of a community group. Groups that have not previously received funding in previous funding rounds will be given priority in this round.
Events must be directly related to supporting community involvement in the conservation of the following threatened species:
• western ringtail possum
Some examples of eligible events are wildlife first aid and fauna rehabilitation training, feral predator control training, night-stalks, nest box construction workshops, fauna survey training workshops, BioBlitz events etc.
All events must be held in the South West NRM region, see strategy.swccnrm.org.au/south-west-nrm-region/, between 1 July 2019 and 20 June 2020.
Groups can apply for funding of up to $2,500 (ex. GST) per event. Groups may apply for funding for a maximum of $2,500 in funding in this grant round. This may be for more than one event.
