The Capital Woodland and Wetlands Conservation Trust is a joint initiative of the ACT Government the Canberra business sector and community. It proposes a new model for public land management, by using the expertise in the ACT Government and combining it with the knowledge, skills and experiences within the ACT community.
The Trust has been established as an independent body to enhance management and build engagement in the protection and conservation of the Mulligans Flat Woodland sanctuary and the Jerrabomberra Wetlands nature Reserve, two important reserves in the ACT.
The Trust wants to harness the skills and experiences of the local business and community because it recognises the passion and commitment that the community already has for these special places.
The Trust will also work with the scientific community to guarantee that the best available knowledge contributes to the development of the reserves. These activities will support and build on the work that has been undertaken by the ACT Parks and Conservation Service.
The Trust will engage with the scientific community in the pursuit of evidence-based management to seek corporate and community assistance, both financial and in-kind. These will support new and bold initiatives that will build on baseline land management activities delivered by the ACT Parks and Conservation Service.
