A PLAN to install nesting boxes for wildlife is among 10 community projects to win funding under the Red Cross Bushfire Appeal.

The first-round grants of up to $15,000 were announced today by Sorell/Tasman Affected Area Recovery Committee co-chair Kerry Vincent, who is also the Mayor of Sorell.

Councillor Vincent said the first round of projects would get people active, engage local youth and protect wildlife.

"Community members have shown enthusiasm and creativity in this first round of projects," he said in a statement.

"These great ideas will bring the community together, both in getting the projects off the ground and giving residents places and facilities to share and have some fun."

The successful projects include: 

  • Landscaping and footpaths around the Sommers Bay Rd car park 
  • A footbridge at Sounds Rivulet 
  • An upgrade of pedestrian access from Sommers Bay Rd to Sommers Bay Jetty 
  • A youth involvement program in the Dunalley area 
  • A basketball slab and hoop in Murdunna 
  • A day use area on the Grave Island foreshore 
  • Watercraft including kayaks, safety gear and storage facilities based at Murdunna 
  • A mobile barbecue and events facility for the greater Dunalley and Murdunna areas 
  • Native wildlife nest boxes in bushfire affected areas to support wildlife where their habitat was destroyed or damaged 
  • Symbols of Recovery – art workshops

Bushfire Appeal Distribution Committee chair Pat Leary said a further round of funding would be available later this year.
