Farmers leading the way
Individual farmers have played a leading role in improving natural assets on their farms. Some of these farmers have shared their insights and experiences with us, and with others around them.
There are farmers who planted shelterbelts before they were common. Farm managers who planted new paddock trees and now can see the result. Landholders who wondered what would happen if they protected their dams from stock ten years ago, and now have an oasis on their farm during drought.
Some farmers have made just one small change, while others have undertaken a decades-long program of natural asset management on their land. All of these farmers have demonstrated that an individual can make a difference to our native wildlife and to the health of our agricultural landscapes, through just a few small management actions on their farm.
