New projects for SA Murray-Darling Basin

The SA Murray-Darling Basin Natural Resources Management (SAMDB NRM) Board will receive more than $10 million dollars over five years from the Australian government to support delivery of local programs, relevant to the SAMDB region under the recent round of the $450 million Regional Land Partnerships funding.

The SAMDB projects are supported by the Australian Government’s Regional Land Partnerships (part of the National Landcare Program) and SAMDB NRM Board.

The SAMDB projects include;

  • improving habitat viability and other recovery actions for threatened Mallee woodland birds including; Malleefowl (Leipoa ocellata), Red-lored Whistler (Pachycephala rufogularis) and Black-eared Miner (Manorina melanotis)
  • restoring the ecological character of the Ramsar wetlands of the SA Murray-Darling Basin
  • restoring the iron-grass natural temperate grassland of South Australia
  • building skills and enhanced management of farm soils and vegetation for improved resource sustainability and productive capacity.

The Regional Land Partnerships is a core component of the Australian government’s $1 billion investment under Phase 2 of its National Landcare Program over five years.
