Well managed land helps preserve and maintain wildlife and their habitat in the natural ecosystem, parks and reserves and prevents the spread of weeds, pests and diseases. Effective land management plays a vital role in protecting and conserving land by minimising impacts across the broader landscape and involves working with and preservation of indigenous culture and heritage resources.

Tocal College trainers are passionate about helping people at all levels to grow in their skills and knowledge in land management to help protect and conserve land.
