Wildlife management for landowners and farmers
Landowners can do a lot to help maintain Queensland's diversity of animals.
Establishing a nature refuge
One way to help protect wildlife, is to establish a nature refuge on your property. If you have a nature refuge or are willing to establish one over all or part of your property, you may be eligible to apply for NatureAssist.
Non-lethal crop protection
There are several non-lethal options to minimise crop damage from wildlife. This can include planting native plants to encourage wildlife away from primary crops by providing more appealing food.
