Natural Resources Kangaroo Island operates an On-ground Works Program that takes a range of measures to support land managers in addressing salinity, biodiversity and soil conservation and sustainably managing land on a landscape scale. This program continues over 15 years of work funded by the National Landcare Program (NAP), Natural Heritage Trust (NHT) and National Action Plan for Salinity and Water Quality (NAP). Research from other programs on KI is used to determine the range of on-ground works offered to land managers to ensure the sustainable management of the Island’s natural resources.
Natural Resources Kangaroo Island also operates the KI Seedbank and Nursery propagating local species for the best results with restorative works.
The last round of assistance to landholders offered funds for:
- fencing existing native vegetation
- fencing saltland areas
- planting native trees and shrubs
- stock and/or vehicle crossings
- water point relocation.
