CEO’s 2019 roundup
It’s great to see the need for feral pig control on Cape York getting national attention and we are continuing to push for more funding to protect our industries and environment.
This will help to support the fantastic work of the Western Cape Turtle Threat Abatement Alliance. This program continues to deliver results but its future is bleak unless we can find more funding.
The article on Reef Trust IV activities highlights the work that land managers get involved in that support protection of the Great Barrier Reef.
The Cape seems to get forgotten in reef discussions far too often, but this hasn’t dampened the commitment for people to do direct on-ground action.
Cape York NRM believes young people have an important role to play in building a sustainable future.
One way we support that is by providing prizes for senior high school students involved in environmentally-focused study or projects.
In this newsletter we celebrate the achievements of Cape York students Jermaine, Phoenyx and Akitou, and I would like to personally congratulate them on the awards they have won through their dedication and hard work.
Thank you for following and supporting the great work across Cape York and I hope you found this newsletter interesting. I wish you all a Merry Christmas and hope to see you somewhere on the Cape soon.
