Applications are considered for projects which will undertake on-ground activities to help rejuvenate the environment in priority areas—in three different streams, conservation, heritage and research.

The conservation stream aims to help threatened species through habitat and species protection and environmental education. It also encourages projects which promote and link habitats in urban settings.

The heritage stream aims to help deliver conservation and understanding of our state’s built heritage and historic shipwrecks.
