Threatened Species Recovery Fund closing 15 June 2017
About the Threatened Species Recovery Fund
In 2016, the Minister for the Environment announced a $5 million Threatened Species Recovery Fund (the Fund) to support communities to actively protect Threatened Species, leverage additional investment, and assist with delivering on the Targets and Action Areas in the Threatened Species Strategy(link is external).
The Fund builds on the Government’s commitment to supporting threatened species recovery through the Threatened Species Commissioner(link is external), and the implementation of the Threatened Species Strategy(link is external) and Threatened Species Prospectus(link is external). It sits within the National Landcare Programme and delivers tangible benefits for Australia’s Threatened Species, as well as helping to grow community involvement in their recovery.
