Petition to be presented to the House of Representatives by the Hon Mr Darren Chester, 36 Macarthur St, Sale  

Title:    Landcare We Care


The Federal Government has restructured its approach to Natural Resource Management resulting in the loss of Landcare facilitators/coordinators who play a pivotal role in Landcare groups and projects. This change to funding is short sighted and will mean the destruction of Landcare as we know it and another blow to struggling rural Australians.

Petition Request:

We, the undersigned, call on the House of Representatives to immediately reinstate the funding of local Landcare facilitators and coordinators in order to allow Landcare groups to function effectively and to address the Caring for Our Country priority of community skills, knowledge and engagement. 

Download the petition for your group and volunteers to sign and return by Monday 23rd November if possible.
