Western Australia is forgetting to maintain the land which provides much of the state’s wealth as volunteer groups in regional areas decline, a peak volunteer land management body says.
Landcare deputy chairman Keith Bradby said the state was facing fresh challenges.
“Continuing salinity right through the Wheatbelt, we’ve just seen massive erosion from those unparalleled floods we’ve had across the South West, we’re still losing lots of vegetation,” he said.
“The pastoral zone is struggling with lots of issues.”
Just days from the state election, the WA branch has released its State of Landcare in WA 2016 report.
