Multiple Program Focus Areas
Sustainable Agriculture Projects engage farmers in sustainable agriculture practices to help maintain food security and care for the natural environment on their property as well as sharing this knowledge with the farming community.
Revegetation/Habitat Restoration/Biodiversity Projects may have one or multiple aims, including improving native habitat and biodiversity, reducing water use and waste management.
Disaster Recovery Projects Bushfires, floods and other natural disasters have a devastating impact on our landscapes, habitat, native species and communities. Landcare Australia supports the Landcare grassroots movement of individuals and groups who have a shared vision to restore and protect the environment in local communities through sustainable land management and conservation activities. Recent examples of our support in this area are the Landcare Australia Bushfire Recovery Grants and The WIRES Landcare Wildlife Relief and Recovery Grants.
Indigenous Landcare Projects include biodiversity, revegetation, Coastcare and Junior Landcare on ground projects with a heavy emphasis on positive community impact. These types of projects are particularly attractive to corporate partners that have, or are developing a Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) to further promote relationships, respect and opportunities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander (ATSI) people and communities.
Junior Landcare Support from corporate and government partners enables Junior Landcare to offer thousands of grants to Australian schools and youth organisations and other initiatives to inspire young Australians to be aware, empowered and active in caring for the environment.

Coastcare projects tackle problems like marine litter, dune erosion, loss of native coastal plants and animals, storm water pollution, weeds and control of human access to sensitive and vulnerable areas. Click here for case studies about a few of our Coastcare projects.
Our responsibility to the natural environment, our communities and a resilient supply chain starts at the farm gate. The a2 Milk Company is proud to support the environmental sustainability of our farms by awarding grants to our a2 Milk™ farmers to contribute to investments in initiatives such as solar power generation, soil quality and waste-water recycling projects, through our partnership with Landcare Australia.
