  • 96,956 community and landholders working to improve the environment on public and private land, more than double the target;
  • over 825,000ha of pest plant and animal control completed, more than 25% above target;
  • 818 waterway structures to stabilise banks and improve habitat, more than double the target;
  • 717km of fences built or improved, more than 25% above target; and
  • 10,134 requests for permits, licences, leases and planning referrals provided to landholders, nearly double the target.
