Wetlands are of immense value to the health of our environment and lifestyle, which is why we are offering funding to farmers for work to improve and maintain their wetlands.

Wetlands occur in many different forms – each has its own unique ecosystem of plants and animals that depend on the wetland for food, water, and habitat. Wetlands provide many valuable and essential ‘free’ services such as:

  • Regulating stream flow to help slow flooding after storms
  • Helping cleanse water of pollution and sediment
  • Providing breeding grounds for fish and other aquatic animals
  • Acting as drought refuges for native reptiles and mammals
  • Providing feeding and roosting areas for native and migratory birds
  • Giving valuable pasture and shelter for stock
