    Landcare is an important mechanism for delivering large government programs to conserve biodiversity. Despite its successes, environmental conditions continue to deteriorate and there are concerns about sustaining volunteer support. Survey data on burnout affecting Landcare participants indicates reduced personal accomplishment and although most respondents were not experiencing high overall burnout, historical evidence suggests a considerable potential for its rapid development. The management of burnout requires a more coherent and adequately resourced approach to managing Landcare groups based on a realistic expectation of the capacity of these groups to contribute to improved environmental conditions.
