In 2009, the Western Australian Government established the State's Natural Resource Management Program to address Western Australian NRM priorities. Since then more than 850 projects have been supported with over $87 million of grants.
The program assists to maintain or enhance the condition of the State's land, water (terrestrial and marine) and biodiversity assets so that they continue to provide economic, environmental, social and cultural benefits to Western Australians.
Over 200 community groups and organisations, industry groups, local governments, schools and state agencies have achieved impressive results in their local environments with this support, and contributed more than $50 million in their own funds and effort.
Diverse environments - coastal and marine; agricultural, pastoral and urban; river and estuarine; natural bush; and wildlife sanctuaries - have been conserved and restored through the activities funded by the program.
The State NRM Program is administered by the Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development, based at South Perth.
