Charities - Australia

Landcare AustraliaLandcare Australia provided small grants to Landcare Groups as a prize for participating in the 2011 Landcare Group Survey. Landcare Australia conducted a nationwide survey of volunteer environmental groups across the country in order to capture their changing needs and challenges.

The ‘Landcare Landscape’ survey revealed a passionate and dedicated movement of people who are concerned for the future of Australia’s natural resources and need ongoing support to enable them to continue with their valuable work.

Groups were able to use this funding as they wished for their ongoing projects, new tools and equipment and social gatherings.
