Healthy Country 17: A new year in NRM

pdfNewsletter Release date:


Issue 17 of the Healthy Country looks at a new year in Natural Resource Management in the Cape York Peninsula.

This issue includes articles about addressing threats to biodiversity such as late season wildfires by raising community awareness, taking a look at the State Goverment's (then) new planning process regarding the water quality of the Cape York Peninsula's water resources, and how Cape York Landcare Inc. had been making an impact to feral weed and animal populations through the distribution of spray packs, herbicide, and drip torches to pastoralists and land owners on the cape.

Among other shorter articles lies a public service announcement about correctly extinguising camp fires, and the potential devastating repurcussions of merely burying them.
