Fencing and revegetation

Reducing stock access and revegetating areas close to waterways reduces the amount of nutrients and sediments flowing through streams, rivers and estuaries.

The Regional Estuaries Initiative’s fencing and revegetation program works with local catchment groups and farmers to fence off these important areas and revegetate with native plant species.

Landowners contribute 50% of the project costs through cash and in-kind contributions.

The Regional Estuaries Initiative has completed over 60 km of fencing since the start of the program.
