It you have an interest in the results of the Victorian Threatened Species Protection Initiative (TSPI) here is a link to the list of applicants who were successful. It looks like some projects will happen on the Victorian Volcanic Plain which is great news.
The announcement was on 27 November but it appears not many people are aware of the outcome. We hope that this form of funding will be seen as being successful and therefore offered again next year.
In addition to the grants schemes, the Victorian Government committed $200,000 to a crowdfunding pilot to support selected threatened species conservation campaigns. This is an interesting development. Three of the five projects selected were fully subscribed.
