Up close to the action in NACC NRM Country

Australian Government Department of Environment representatives Neil Riches and Christine Kajewski got a good view of the great NRM work being done across the region during a visit to NACC country this week.

NACC staff were keen to showcase some of the organisation’s flagship programs, so everyone had their boots on and sleeves up.

Over three days, Christine and Neil were taken to see a range of activities, including farmers protecting biodiversity on their properties, coastal photo monitoring in Dongara, invasive species surveying in the Chapman River, a cell grazing farm demonstration, and revegetation work being undertaken as part of NACC’s NRM Capacity Building for Indigenous Prison Inmates.

NACC CEO Richard McLellan said the team was delighted to have Christine and Neil visiting the region.

“We work on almost a daily basis with staff from the federal government agencies to deliver the National Landcare Programme in our region, so it was wonderful to have them in our region and to show them first-hand the results of some of the work that NACC and our partners and the community are doing,” he said.

“The team at NACC have put in an amazing 12 months through to 30 June, so it was great to showcase some of that wonderful work and the on-ground outcomes to our colleagues in the Federal Government Department of Environment.

“I’m pretty sure that they enjoyed the experience too.”
