Old Landcare logo no longer in use

In the past groups have used the Landcare logo with the word ‘Landcare’ under the hands without ‘Australia”. However, we have noticed an increased misuse of this Landcare logo. Therefore this logo is no longer available for groups or organisations to use. The Landcare caring hands have to be used together with a group’s name in accordance with the Style Guide and terms of use provided by Landcare Australia.

Report logo misuses

The Landcare logo and iconic caring hands are important symbols that represent the Landcare ethic of grassroots groups and communities working together on sustainable land management and environmental conservation activities. Please report any misuses of the Landcare Logo by emailing us at enquiries@landcareaustralia.com.au with ‘Logo Misuse’ in the subject line.
