Getting involved in the Biolinks

What's in it for me?

We can retain our birds, animals and plants by controlling weeds and ferals, building connections within the landscape through vegetation and increasing the size and diversity of important bushland patches. The best part is we can do this in such a way that it will fit into the landscape of existing farms, increasing the benefits to be gained from nature's services. Participating landholders will be supported in the plan layout and design of any works to take place on their property. The intent of any works will be to improve the functions and prodcutivity of the land.


How can the project help?

Join the many landholders and regional organisations already planning and building the Brigalow Nandewar Biolinks. The project may be able to assist you with:

  • Controling pigs and foxes in bushland
  • Controling key environmental weeds: Coolatai Grass, African Love Grass, Green Panic, Buffel Grass and Boxthorn

The types of activities the project will support are:

  • Shade and shelter plantings and beneficial insect harbour
  • Managing grazing in bushland
  • Revegetation to increase bushland patch size
  • Revegetation to increase connections between bushland patches
  • Revegetation and increased natural regeneration to improve river health

What you can do

Simple actions can make a big difference in managing and enhancing biodiversity on your land and improving your productivity. You can manage existing grassland, paddock trees or bushland to ensure it is in its best possible condition. You can revegetate cleared or degraded areas.
