We would like to express our heartfelt condolences to the people and communities impacted by the current flood emergency unfolding across the state.
We know there is a large number of BCT landholders in the flood-impacted regions whose protected areas will be damaged, resulting in a potential loss of biodiversity. We are also very aware of the inevitable broader impacts on people, families, homes, businesses, and communities. We have been shocked and saddened by the extent and severity of the floods and their impact on our landholders and the environment so far.
The rain is still falling, and we have some tough days ahead. Please stay safe.
If you require assistance due to flood and storm emergencies, please phone NSW State Emergency Service (SES) on 132 500. In life-threatening emergencies call triple zero (000).
Below is a number of links for landholders to obtain assistance from various stakeholders.
If you’re a flood-impacted landholder with a BCT agreement and you need assistance with site-specific activities to restore conservation values please visit our grants page.
