Land for Wildlife is a free, voluntary, non-binding program that encourages and assists landholders and community groups to protect and restore habitat for wildlife on their properties. The program provides valuable services including technical advice and resources, educational activities and events and incentives and environmental funding when available.
Read more about Land for Wildlife SEQ on their website.
We welcome landholders to the program who have one hectare or more of native vegetation with:
Bush blocks, farms, schools, golf courses and commercial properties are all eligible to join Land for Wildlife. There must be a willingness to protect and improve at least part of your land for nature conservation. In addition to size and vegetation criteria, other factors affect eligibility including connectivity, presence of threatened species, habitat for threatened species, waterways, educational or broader community values.
A ‘working towards’ registration category is available for landholders who do not qualify for full registration at the first property visit. Advice will be given to help the landholder work towards full registration.
The Land for Wildlife program doesn’t have any impact on your legal property rights and in no way changes how you can utilise your property. It's expected that you make a reasonable effort to manage your property for nature conservation.
You can register online and a Toowoomba Regional Council representative will contact you. Please be aware that there is only one Land for Wildlife property assessor and the time taken to follow up on your registration will depend on their workload.
