The Habitat Bunbury Program aims to achieve positive environmental outcomes through increasing knowledge and understanding of local biodiversity and natural environments within the City of Bunbury. Projects about and for the environment equip the community with skills, knowledge, and enthusiasm to value and actively protect the natural environment.
The objectives of the program are as follows:
• To facilitate the development and implementation of environmental education projects undertaken by local community groups, not-for-profit organisations and educational institutes.
• To assist students and community members in addressing local environmental issues.
• To promote the exchange of ideas and experiences about the environment between students and the community or between community members.
The Habitat Bunbury Program provides grants to undertake projects that protect and enhance the natural environment within the City of Bunbury. Each application can apply for grant funding of up to $5,000.
Examples of possible projects include:
