Western Cape College Leads to Careers Expo 2017
This was a great opportunity to explore employment opportunities with students from the Western Cape College and promote the amazing things the local land and sea rangers have been achieving. Many students were interested in becoming rangers and had already commenced their Cert II in Conservation and Land Management. The expo was a terrific place for students to get some useful information, ideas for careers, and a range of other options for the bright futures ahead of them.
Cairns Home Show and Caravan, Camping and Boating Expo
Cape York NRM shared a stall at the Cairns Home Show and Caravan, Camping and Boating Expo with other environmental groups - Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service, Wet Tropics Management Authority and the Department of Environment and Heritage Protection. This large space drew in the crowds and many people were interested in the campaigns and information provided.
National Parks staff assisted with camp bookings and enquiries for Cape York which enabled Thoughtful Travelling and respecting Country messaging to be promoted, while discussing camping options and things to do before travelling remote. The three-day event attracted over 2000 patrons to come in to have a chat, discuss camping, travelling and things to do while visiting Cape York.
