The Trust’s Community Bush Regeneration Program, now into its second year, has already resulted in the rehabilitation of over 1400 hectares of degraded bushland. Further conservation outcomes are being achieved through the NSW Government’s Green Corridors Program. The Great Eastern Ranges Initiative is now improving habitat and linkages across 9642 hectares of the Great Dividing Range, while four new biobank sites will provide permanent protection for endangered ecological communities through the Growth Centres and Linking Landscapes programs.
The three-year Riverina Red Gums Program concluded this year. Projects developed through the highly successful Regional Employment and Community Development Fund have created approximately 370 direct jobs and 279 indirect jobs and resulted in capital investment of around $22 million in the Riverina region.
