LFW encourages and assists landholders to include nature conservation along with other land management objectives. The program is free for landholders to join and is not legally binding. Registration in the scheme will not change the legal status of a property.
The Community Environment Network(CEN) facilitates and supports Land For Wildlife in New South Wales in partnership with interested local organisations. CEN holds a licence from Land for Wildlife to co-ordinate the program and use the Trademark in NSW. The licence requires CEN to adhere to a number of protocols to ensure the standards of LFW are consistent across Australia.
CEN provides statewide coordination and the framework for Land for Wildlife. This includes:
Regional delivery of Land for Wildlife may be carried out by non-government organisations, community groups, Catchment Management Authorities or local councils who form a partnership with CEN. Regional coordination includes:
Regional organizations co-ordinating Land for Wildlife receive CEN support in the form of training, advice and information and support for funding applications and registration of all properties assessed.
All information provided by landholders is confidential to the landholder, Regional provider and CEN.
