Bringing plains-wanderers back from the brink

Incentives are available for landholders to help preserve the critically endangered plains-wanderer and its grassland habitat.

The plains-wanderer is the only surviving species in the family Pedionomidae, and the grasslands of the Riverina Plains, between Jerilderie, Hay and Griffith, are one the last areas in Australia where they are found.

Incentives are available for pest and weed control, fencing, water points, saltbush plantations and stock management areas, as well as feeding infrastructure,  to assist landholders with livestock management and plains-wander conservation.

Contact Claire Gannon to express your interest on 0429 465 958.

Restoring superb parrot flyways

Incentives are available for planting and direct seeding of known native vegetation food plants for superb parrots, fencing to exclude stock and allow natural regeneration of superb parrot habitat and the protection of paddock trees with hollows.
