Landcare Report Card
Each year, the Port Phillip & Westernport CMA produces the Landcare Report Card, which provides a snapshot of environmental volunteering in the Port Phillip and Western Port region.
The Landcare Report Card is compiled on based on data from the Victorian Government’s Landcare Group Health Survey and Victorians Volunteering for Nature Survey, as well as financial reports from the Port Phillip & Westernport CMA and the Department of Land, Water, Environment and Planning.
The report card shares key statistics but more importantly, it shares stories of the achievements of Landcare groups and networks, friends groups.
Please note that the report cards reflect the activities undertaken by surveyed groups only and some figures have been estimated.
