Environmental groups get $2m

FOUR Clarence Valley environmental groups have more than $2 million to spend on their projects.

Federal Member for Page, Janelle Saffin, said the projects have been successful in the first round of the Australian Government's Biodiversity Fund, receiving a total of $2,349,700.

The successful groups are:

  • Upper Clarence Combined Landcare Incorporated ($1,315,000) for projects including controlling invasive species, bush regeneration and restoring vegetation.
  • EnviTE ($690,000) for coastal corridor restoration over 22 sites.
  • Clarence Valley Council ($223,300) to restore habitat and address biodiversity loss and riparian degradation on the Clarence floodplain.
  • K Newnham ($98,000) for regeneration of subtropical rainforest and create an environmental corridor along creeks.

Ms Saffin said farmers and other land managers across our region did a great job through Landcare work, and the Biodiversity Fund would build on this.
