LachLandcare Inc is a partner in the NSW Office of Environment and Heritage’s Save our Species Program to protect and enhance the habitat of the threatened Superb Parrot.
The parrot requires live and dead trees with hollows for nesting and clearing and firewood cutting has been a major cause of its decline. Loss of living and dead hollow bearing trees and foraging habitat are the main reasons Superb Parrots are listed as ‘Vulnerable’.
Paddock trees and patches of native woodland play an important role in maintaining the productive capacity of agricultural land and they are critically important to the conservation of the Superb Parrot and other native flora and fauna.
LachLandcare has funding available to assist farmers in the Hilltops region to protect paddock trees and protect and enhance remnant box-gum woodland habitat for the threatened Superb Parrot and is seeking expressions of interest from landholders interested to participate in this program.
Funding guidelines and Expression of Interest forms can be found at https://www.lachlandcare.org.au/projects/saving-our-superb-parrot or by emailing goulburnyass@Lachlandcare.org.au or phone 0459 352 892.
Expressions of interest close 15th February 2019, however if the funding is not allocated there will be further rounds over the next 18 months.
