Australia has a fragile natural environment which has been radically altered over the past 200 years by land clearing for agriculture and urban development. It has become very urgent that measures are put in place to halt this degradation and in recent years federal and state governments have put in place various policies and funding mechanisms to encourage communities and landholders to take some responsibility for rehabilitating their natural environment. These policies and mechanisms are in a state of constant and ongoing change and this paper examines the effect of these changes on a local community based catchment group in Perth, Western Australia.
