Landcare Australia, with Gallagher, announces the 2023 Gallagher Landcare Electric Fencing Grant recipients.

A total pool of $176,000 (ex-GST) was made available to 22 eligible groups or individuals for use on conservation and biodiversity protection projects. The projects were selected because they are aligned to Gallagher’s priority areas of conservation exclusion/inclusion fencing, riparian protection and farm dam restoration.

Each successful recipient will receive up to $8,000 (ex-GST) towards electric fencing materials provided by Gallagher, in line with its commitment to support local communities and the environment with Landcare Australia.

Congratulations to the Gallagher and Landcare Australia Electric Fencing Grant recipients for 2023:
