LFW MEMBERSHIP

Land for Wildlife welcomes landholders who:

  • would like to manage part or all of their property as habitat for native plants and animals

  • are interested in integrating nature conservation with other land uses

  • have a property with at least 1 hectare of intact native vegetation (exceptions may apply for educational, community-owned or other properties); AND/OR

  • have a property of at least 1 hectare that they would like to restore to native vegetation

Land for Wildlife also welcomes educational partners such as schools, nature reserves and publicly or commercially owned / managed properties to act as examples of wildlife habitat that are available for the wider community to visit.

There are 2 categories of LFW membership available to landholders:

  1. Full membership: available to landholders that have at least 1 hectare of native vegetation and are actively managing it (for weeds and fire etc. as needed) to be intact and conserved as habitat for wildlife.
     

  2. Growing towards membership: available to landholders who have less than1 hectare of intact native vegetation, but are restoring their land through revegetation of native flora, or active weed and fire management to incorporate at least 1 hectare of intact native wildlife habitat.
