WILDLIFE, LAND GRANT

Midwest Times - - NEWS -

The Fed­eral Gov­ern­ment has given North­ern Agri­cul­tural Catch­ments Coun­cil $9,525,839.

The money will help save threat­ened species malleefowl, scaly-leaved feath­er­flower and re­gion­ally ex­tinct mam­mals.

It will ad­di­tion­ally sup­port the smarter farms project, which en­cour­ages farm­ers to im­prove how they use land.

Money has also been in­vested to pro­tect Nin­ga­loo Coast and Shark Bay World Her­itage.

The fund­ing is part of a $450 mil­lion Aus­tralian Gov­ern­ment spend on re­gional land man­age­ment.
