The Land for Wildlife (LFW) program is a voluntary property registration scheme for landowners who wish to manage areas for biodiversity and wildlife habitat. LFW encourages and assists landholders to include nature conservation along with other land management objectives. The program is free for landholders to join and is not legally binding. Registration in the scheme will not change the legal status of a property.

LFW supports landholders who want information about wildlife management on their property and provides opportunities for landholders to share their experiences with other landholders and partner organisations, through:

  • A free property assessment and information about wildlife management;
  • information about the role of wildlife and native vegetation in sustainable agriculture to control pest species, provide shade and shelter, manage salinity and control wind and water erosion
  • twice yearly newsletters;
  • links and contacts with like-minded people;
  • a LFW sign and membership certificate once the property is registered with the scheme.

Benefits to Landholders:

  • Membership to a nationwide program;
  • Free individual consultation on land management issues;
  • Site report including advice on managing environmental issues such as; erosion, wildlife habitat and weed control techniques;
  • Access to education programs and activities such as workshops;
  • Information on how to collect and grow native plants;
  • Assistance in applying for grant funding.

The Community Environment Network (CEN) facilitates and supports Land For Wildlife in New South Wales in partnership with interested local organisations. CEN provides statewide coordination and the framework for Land for Wildlife, ensuring providers adhere to a number of protocols to ensure the standards of LFW are consistent across Australia.

More information is available on the CEN website.
