Bushlinks consists of a number of local groups and agencies working together for connectivity conservation in the eastern Murray region of NSW.
The Bushlinks working group has a revegetation project being managed by Holbrook Landcare Network on behalf of the Slopes2Summit and the Great Eastern Ranges Initiative in partnership with Murray CMA.
This Biodiversity Fund project is funded by the Australian Government’s Clean Energy Futures Fund and is bringing $2.3 million of investment to the region over 6 years. The project is able to provide on-ground incentives for farmers doing revegetation for connectivity and carbon over the next 5 years in the eastern Murray, prioritising projects that connect up remnant vegetation patches with revegetation on farms.
Bushlinks can help you and your group, or neighbours with cross property planning for connectivity conservation at the local level, and your projects may be eligible for incentives such as native plants and fencing rebates.
Landholders in the Holbrook, Mullengandra, Tabletop, Thurgoona, Jindera, Woomargarma and the Upper Billabong Creek should be especially interested in this project.
