Ensuring healthy communities
Restoring country, culture and community in hard-hit NSW
The Great Eastern Ranges (GER) initiative has been awarded a significant government grant for a large-scale effort to help restore country, culture and community in four heavily bushfire affected landscapes in New South Wales. Through funding from the Australian and NSW Government’s Bushfire Local Economic Recovery (BLER) Fund, GER is working with its regional partner networks, the International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW) and the Community Environment Network, to roll out recovery activities in the NSW North Coast, Blue Mountains, South Coast and Far South Coast.

Planting for Pollinators
To help secure the future of our animal pollinators and reduce the risk of disease spill over, GER is working with ecologist Dr Peggy Eby and partners to restore and reconnect flowering trees to boost sources of food for flying foxes and nectar-dependant birds.
