Every covenant has its own particular requirements to enable it to thrive. Usually fencing out stock is essential. Depending on the values protected, other measures may be necessary to promote the health of your protected land.
Controlling pest animals such as possums, goats, deer and pigs allows a diverse range of species to flourish. Predator control is ideal and will help indigenous wildlife to breed successfully.
Protected land can be compromised by pest plants so controlling weed species which can threaten the values of the covenant is important.
Your Regional Rep will visit your protected land every two years. Reps are a great source of advice on managing your covenant.
When new protection is put in place, we make a contribution towards projects like replanting, trapping, and weed control. Reps are also able to assist you with applications for funding from outside sources.
