We can help to fund local community conservation projects.

The Restore Hibiscus & Bays Volunteer Initiatives Programme (VIP) aims to provide funding to our network of groups, neighbourhoods, schools, and other individuals to carry out short-term projects to eradicate pests, restore native habitats and improve water quality across public and private land in the Hibiscus & Bays Local Board area. 

Communities can apply for funding up to around $3,000 for a project that they have identified as important to the conservation and restoration of native biodiversity in their area. 

The deadline for the first round of applications is 30 June 2020. For more information, download the overview brochure and application form.
