The objective of the Remnant Vegetation Protection Scheme is to encourage land owners to fence and protect areas of remnant vegetation for the purposes of flora and fauna conservation, land conservation and aesthetics. The means by which land owners are encouraged to protect remnant vegetation is the provision of a grant equal to half the cost of labour and materials to erect a stock-proof fence around the vegetation concerned. The RVPS is jointly administered by the Departments of Conservation and Land Management (CALM) and Agriculture (DAWA), with the latter as the lead agency. CALM contributes substantially to the RVPS through the assessment procedure and general expertise on nature conservation priorities and management advice. DAWA organizes the call and assessment of nominations, the grant approvals and contracts, including the placement of memorials on land titles, the maintenance of financial and geographic data and the monitoring of remnant condition of protected areas.
