We welcome you to join us at ALCA’s sixth annual Private Land Conservation Conference, PLC2021: Recover, Restore, Redouble. The conference this year is on 20-22 October 2021, Doltone House Darling Island in Sydney, hosted by Biodiversity Conservation Trust NSW.

This year ALCA will run a hybrid event, with digital and face-to-face components. We believe it is important to reconnect after the challenges we have all faced the past three years, however are ready to adapt as we need to.   

 

Private land conservation is more important than ever, as a practice and as a key contributor to the economy and to healthy and resilient communities, culture and landscapes across Australia.

Australia has experienced droughts, catastrophic bushfires, a global pandemic and social movements. 2020 revealed the intersections between social, financial and environmental systems.  In a time of rapid change and disruption, we’re demonstrating that a resilient and diverse conservation land management sector can deliver scalable solutions to complex challenges.

We have been recovering, we’ve been restoring our land, water, culture and community, and with enabling platforms we have the opportunity to redouble our efforts. ALCA’s PLC2021 Conference will drive a forward-looking public agenda through the sharing of ideas, knowledge and experiences to build insights, inform action and shape outcomes.

The Australian Land Conservation Alliance (ALCA) supports the diverse people, places and practices that contribute to the conservation and health of privately owned and managed land.

ALCA brings together Australia’s leading on-ground conservation organisations. Our members are apolitical and together we are taking the lead on some of the most pressing conservation issues. We work across Australia to restore endangered ecosystems, expand finance and funding, build the protected area estate and use nature-based solutions to tackle climate change.

Our members work across:

The NSW Biodiversity Conservation Trust (BCT) is a statutory not-for-profit body established under the Biodiversity Conservation Act 2016, which commenced operating on 25 August 2017.

 

The BCT works with landholders to establish and manage long term conservation areas on private land. There are a number of pathways to achieve this, including voluntary agreements, funded agreements and stewardship sites under the Biodiversity Offsets Scheme. 

 

The BCT provides a unique opportunity to secure long term funding for conservation areas, with funding set aside and managed in trust for all BCT grants, funded agreements and stewardship sites.

 

The BCT manages more than 2000 private land conservation agreements with landholders throughout NSW covering more than 2.1 million hectares. This is about 2.7% of NSW or about a third of the size of the National Parks estate.
