National Landcare Programme
The Australian Government has announced it plans to merge Caring for our Country and Landcare to create a single National Landcare Programme based on three principles: simple, local and long-term.
Further information about the National Landcare Programme will be posted as it becomes available. In the meantime, you can still find information on current and past projects under Caring for our Country and related programmes on this web site.
Caring for our Country is one way the Australian Government funds environmental management of our natural resources by supporting communities, farmers and other land managers to protect Australia's natural environment and sustainability.
Funding Indigenous projects is an important part of Caring for our Country. It contributes to the Council of Australian Government's commitment to Closing the Gap.
