Fingal Head Coastcare will receive a $4,600 conservation grant, Environment Minister Mark Speakman and Member for Tweed Geoff Provest announced today.

The money will pay for a computer and data projector to prepare and present education programs to schools and community groups and a trailer and other equipment for bush regeneration activities.

Mr Provest congratulated Fingal Head Coastcare on its successful application.

“Fingal Head Coastcare makes an important contribution to educating the community and undertaking critical local conservation projects, including by investing over 2,500 volunteer hours last year alone,” Mr Provest said.

Mr Speakman said it was grassroots conservation work such as this that drove generational behaviour change for the better.

“It’s important for the government to support local initiatives which encourage community involvement in conservation, and that’s why I’m so pleased to support Fingal Head Coastcare,” Mr Speakman said.
