Tamar Action Grants

As part of the River Health Action Plan – Catchment Works Program, Tamar Action Grants are available to support eligible landholders to improve waterway health, by restricting stock access to waterways and improving effluent management on dairy farms.

Projects can be staged over the five year life of the program and can include multiple sites. Eligible activities are those identified by the Launceston City Deal as providing significant potential improvements in water quality in the kanamaluka/Tamar estuary, such as:

  • waterway fencing and revegetation
  • provision of alternative stock water
  • stock crossings
  • improved effluent management.

Eastern Barred Bandicoot

The Eastern Barred Bandicoot Project aims to safeguard northern Tasmania as a refuge for Eastern Barred Bandicoots and other threatened species and communities. The project focuses on protecting potential habitat for the Eastern Barred Bandicoot or identifying areas for revegetation works to provide new habitat. These areas would preferably be close to existing native vegetation or waterways.

The target project areas include:

  • Carrick area;
  • Longford to Perth
  • the West Tamar from Deviot/Winkleigh, south to Riverside.

NRM North have funding available to provide plants for revegetation works and fencing at approved sites. As part of the project, motion cameras will be set up to monitor the presence of native and feral animals at the sites over time.
