Revitalising Private Conservation in SA

Revitalising Private Conservation in SA

The Revitalising Private Conservation in South Australia program is an exciting new collaboration between the primary industries and conservation sectors. The program provides existing and aspiring Heritage Agreement owners with an opportunity to access advice, connect with other heritage agreement owners, and access grants to plan and undertake important nature conservation works on their properties. It aims to expand the number, extent and quality of protected areas of native vegetation on private land in South Australia.

Established in South Australia in 1980, the Heritage Agreement program includes more than 1600 primary producer and conservation landholders, protecting an amazing diversity of landscapes and native plants and animals exceeding 1.5 million hectares on private land.

The Revitalising Private Conservation in South Australia program, established and funded by the South Australian Government, brings together an outstanding partnership of South Australia’s leading environmental and agricultural producer organisations, including Conservation SA, Livestock SA, Nature Conservation Society of South Australia, and Trees For Life. The program is led by the Nature Foundation as the principal delivery partner working closely with the Department for Environment and Water.
