We do not expect to offer another round of Wildlife Recovery Grants in 2020; however, if we do we will let you know here and via social media.

The summer bushfires caused devastation across South Australia.  Nature Foundation and the South Australian National Parks and Wildlife Service joined forces to create the Wildlife Recovery Fund. The Fund takes a long-term strategic approach to re-establish critical habitat and undertake priority recovery actions in South Australia, particularly for threatened and vulnerable species. It has attracted wonderfully generous donations large and small from across Australia and overseas.

The Wildlife Recovery Fund Grants program (the Grants program) will support individuals, community groups and other organisations to undertake projects aimed at promoting the medium to long term recovery and increasing resilience of fire impacted habitats, native flora and fauna (particularly threatened species) in South Australia.
The Grants program will fund a range of projects that assist natural regeneration, pest plant and animal control, and fencing, through to technical activities such as species translocation and monitoring programs. Projects that increase scientific knowledge of habitat and native flora and fauna species recovery and resilience are encouraged
