Strong support for conservation and landcare job creation initiatives as Australians increasingly struggle to find work: new polling results  

More than four in five Australians (83%) think the Morrison Government should fund practical environmental initiatives like tree planting, weed removal and river restoration to keep people in regional communities employed while Australia recovers from the economic impacts of COVID-19, according to a recent poll. 

In order to keep people employed while Australia recovers from the impact of COVID-19, an alliance of more than 70 conservation and farming organisations is calling on state and federal governments to fund thousands of jobs undertaking practical conservation activities like planting trees, removing weeds and restoring rivers.
