Wimmera CMA

Wimmera CMA works in partnership with the community, stakeholders, and partners to deliver a range of services to improve and enhance the condition of the region’s environment.

Wimmera CMA has statutory functions under the Water Act 1989 with respect to waterway, floodplain and regional drainage management; and responsibilities under the Catchment and Land Protection Act 1994 with respect to pests, plants and animals, and land management.

Some of Wimmera CMA’s activities include:

  • community awareness raising activities
  • monitoring to assess how natural resource management projects are influencing biodiversity. An example of this was Wimmera CMA’s bird monitoring program, which collected information on bird populations to provide a general indication of changes in environmental health
  • undertaking works and funding projects to eradicate pest plant and animals (i.e. rabbit warren ripping, blackberry, and poisoning)
