Community groups and individuals are encouraged to submit applications for funding for on-ground activities that maintain or enhance threatened species habitat, threatened ecological communities, migratory species, regionally significant species habitat (or communities) or the ecological character of the Peel-Yalgorup Ramsar site.

Priority funding will be given to individuals and groups to undertake activities to protect these areas through fencing, weed control and feral animal control.

All activities must be undertaken within the Peel-Harvey Catchment and be completed by March 30, 2018.
