This year was the first year that the Trust implemented all programs under the City and Country Environment Restoration Program, announced by the NSW Premier in November 2005. This year saw the Trust provide funding for: the buy-out of commercial fishing licences to help establish the Port Stephens-Great Lakes Marine Park and the Batemans Marine Park; grants to local government agencies to promote sustainability efforts and initiatives; a native vegetation package helping farmers adjust to new land clearing laws; the purchase of water licences to provide water for the environment under the NSW RiverBank program; and the continuation of strategic grants for environmental research, restoration and rehabilitation, education, waste reduction and grants supporting lead environmental community groups.

This year has marked the much anticipated start of an expanded and exciting range of new Trust grants programs, which will continue over the coming years.
