WHAT DOES GEMG FUND?
The GEMG can provide funding for projects that improve environmental knowledge and understanding, promote environmental sustainability, enhance and protect the natural environment, and are relevant to our members.
The 2022/23 Funding round will be announced in November 2022, via our mailing list, please check in for updates later in the year.
The GEMG has provided funding for the following projects to assist with research studies, to help promote environmental awareness, and to help local groups and organisations remain sustainable.
REWILDING THE WEST DOCUMENTARY (2021)
‘Rewilding The West’ will be a documentary series about the profound re-connection with nature and the environment, that comes from volunteering for conservation programs. It aims to improve environmental knowledge and help viewers understand what’s at risk of extinction in the southern half of Western Australia, and what is being done to protect the natural environment.
Many other organisations have helped fund the filming and editing including ‘Gilbert’s Potoroo Action Group’ and ‘Friends of the Western Ground Parrot’. The GEMG’s contribution of $10,000 will help towards editing the series together, which will hopefully be completed by June 2022.
