SUCCESSFUL ROUND 2 COMMUNITY ENVIRONMENT GRANTS PROGRAM PROJECTS REWARDED
February 21, 2022
The Corangamite CMA is delighted to announce that the deployment of feral cat detection dogs is just one of the 10 successful projects we have been able fund to as part of Round 2 of the Australian Government's $1M Community Environment Grants Program.
Yesterday Susan Ley officially announced an array of projects that will receive funding under the $140,000 Round 2 Community Environment Grants Program.
"The Otways are unfortunately falling victim to a large feral cat population preying on the native animals that call the area home," Minister Ley said.
“One of the successful projects is utilising feral cat detection dogs to help researchers gather information across the Otways.
“The outcomes of their research will be used to inform future management strategies for land managers," Minister Ley said.
