Land For Wildlife
The Jingeri Management Group is proud to be a member of the Land For Wildlife initiative in South-East Queensland. Land For Wildlife is a vibrant, progressive program that aims to protect native wildlife and flora for the benefit of future generations. Land for Wildlife brings together like-minded landholders to share skills and knowledge about nature conservation. To date over 50,000 hectares of habitat for wildlife has been protected with a further 3700 hectares under restoration, just in South East Queensland.
Land for Wildlife members (like The Jingeri Management Group) join the program because they want to enjoy and protect native plants and wildlife on their property. Providing healthy habitats for wildlife also has wider benefits such as reducing erosion, connecting patches of bushland together, improving soil health, improving water quality in creeks and improving our sense of well-being and aesthetics. Basically, members provide land for wildlife. Land for Wildlife members do a lot of work. Previous surveys have estimated that Land for Wildlife members spend 1-2 weeks per year on habitat management.
