South West NRM is now accepting applications for the next phase of Collaborative Area Management (CAM) cluster funding. Applications are currently open, and will close at 5.00pm on Friday 21 April 2017. South West NRM’s Collaborative Area Management program will assist rural landholders to construct high integrity cluster fencing for wild dog management throughout south west Queensland. The project aims to reduce the significant impacts of wild dogs on livestock, native species, and human and domestic animal safety. Funding will specifically target areas with high wild dog density and evidence of high impacts.
$2 million is funding is currently available to cluster groups within the priority one (1) shires of Murweh, Paroo, and Quilpie, as well as the priority two (2) shire of Bulloo.
