The funding rounds are publicly advertised at the start of April and September
The Dunedin Biodiversity Fund was established in August 2007. The purpose of this fund is to maintain a network of viable habitats and ecosystems in Dunedin by encouraging and supporting landowners who are committed to protecting, enhancing and managing indigenous biodiversity.
Funding is allocated on a cost-sharing basis for proposed projects that aim at:
- Conserving or protecting indigenous biodiversity by fencing and permanently protecting areas through covenanting and
- Management of indigenous biodiversity for restoration and enhancement of biodiversity values
The April 2018 funding round has $30,000 available for allocation in the form of grants on a cost-sharing basis (50% landowner 50% Council). The maximum grant is $5,000 per project. The fund is contestable and each application will be assessed on its merits on a case-by-case basis.
