The Victorian Government has announced a $31M boost to increase conservation on private land.
The new BushBank scheme, introduced by the State’s Energy, Environment and Climate Change Minister, Lily D’Ambrosio, will see large parcels of land regenerated to provide habitat for endangered flora and fauna and increase awareness of the role that private land conservation can play in Victoria’s broader biodiversity and sustainability efforts.
