Landcare in Focus May 2022

These past years we have experienced devastating drought, bushfires and catastrophic floods, and while many of us are still reeling from the impacts, the incredible response to these disasters from thousands of volunteers and groups across Australia has shown that landcare is not only critical for environmental protection, it is now central to local recovery and resilience building.

From a Landcare Led Bushfire Recovery Project bringing together schools, landcarers, landholders, ecologists and Traditional Owners to protect fire affected bird life, to a WIRES Landcare Wildlife Relief and Recovery project empowering citizen scientists to investigate long term impacts of disasters on Platypus – the breadth of landcare work within communities across our country continues to expand.

Together we are showcasing the value of local experience and motivation in caring for our country, and demonstrating to Australia that not only are we future focused, but we are in it for the long haul.
