HRF differs to most other Environmental Interest groups in that the focus will be on project management and the on ground implementation of works. Also, through community and professional collaboration, HRF will work on private land as well as public land. This fundamental step will be a first in Australia, where political boundaries will no longer define what can and cannot be achieved in terms of the rehabilitation and reconnection of habitats.
Another key point that makes HRF unique is its focus on assuring long term maintenance and protection of its projects. Funding and responsibility for ongoing maintenance is defined at the beginning of each project, and forms part of the official agreement with landholders and HRF. Furthermore, projects will be protected in perpetuity via legally binding Conservation Covenants.
Projects may include, but are not limited to, the following:-
- Noxious and Environmental Weed Control
- Revegetation of Degraded Land Using Indigenous Plants
- Habitat Creation for Endangered Species
- The Reconnection of Fragmented Habitats Via the Creation of Wildlife Corridors
- Erosion Control and Water Quality Improvement
Permeating through all environmental improvement works is the goal to involve and educate the general public. Focusing on children in particular, our projects will provide practical opportunities to educate people on how to protect, enhance and/or recreate the natural environment.
HRF specifically designs and implements on-going projects to cater for the unprecedented public demand for getting involved in the environment. HRF firmly believes that everyone should be able to participate and/or fund projects.
