About the Landcare NSW Natural Disaster Seed Fund
In November 2019, Landcare NSW launched a fundraising appeal focused on raising funds for drought relief projects. Compounded by the devastating 2019/2020 bushfires, an additional fundraising appeal was launched with a focus on support for projects affected by both natural disasters.
Through the generous donations of our NSW Landcare community, within the state and abroad, Landcare NSW raised $17,000.
From this we developed the ‘Landcare NSW Natural Disaster Seed Fund’. This Fund will help our Landcare NSW community rebuild and repair existing projects.
Our objectives are to assist our Landcare NSW member groups with the the replacement, repair or re-establishment of on-ground works that have been directly affected by the 2019/2020 natural disasters, including, but not limited to:
- Animal habitats (including nest boxes, hollows etc.);
- Replacement of fencing for areas that were damaged for existing projects;
- Riparian works to mitigate environmental impacts of bushfire/drought affected flooding; and/or
- Replacement of facilities and/or equipment which were lost or damaged by natural disasters during the period from 1 July 2019 to 31 January 2020.
