Lockheed Martin Australia has been a Landcare Australia partner since 2017.
The Lockheed Martin Landcare Grants program reflects the values of the company’s Go Green program which promotes business practices and facility processes that reduce environmental and operational risk.
The most recent round of Lockheed Martin Landcare Grants were awarded in 2020 for projects focusing on one or more priority areas including reducing carbon emissions, improving water quality, bushfire responses, recovery works and hazard reduction, reducing water use and/or waste management.
Three groups received the 2020 grants:
- The Yarra Riverkeeper Association for their “Rewilding the Yarra at Burnley” project;
- Habitat for Recovery Alliance for a project to revegetate wildlife habitats in multiple areas impacted by the Cudelee Creek bushfires in the Adelaide Hills; and
- The Shoalhaven Landcare Association for a project to restore ecological health to Bengalee.
Prior projects Lockheed Martin funded include supporting the restoration of important Aboriginal cultural sites Ginninderra catchment in Canberra, as well as helping assist the work of the Ceduna Aboriginal Corporation (CAC) to upgrade the water delivery system for CDC’s seed propagation site. This project allowed for seed collection and propagation of native plants for revegetation projects in this region situated 800km west of Adelaide.
