This month we are formally introducing you to NACC NRM’s Programs & Operations Manager, Kane Watson!
I have an appreciation for all that our great state and country has to offer. The natural assets and diversity we have, was and still is, my inspiration to work in natural resource management.
Originally from Kununurra, I studied Environmental Management in Far North Queensland and have travelled through every state, working in the Pilbara and South West.
Since 2010, my family and I have called Dongara home. I have worked in resources, biodiversity and carbon plantations, agriculture and environmental management. During this time I have studied further, adding conservation, sustainability and education to my skillset.
I am excited to have joined the NACC NRM team this year. I feel that this is a place where I can invest my passion for the unique and wonderful flora and fauna we have, partner with the diverse and dedicated land managers of the region and explore opportunities to conserve and sustainably manage the many assets that the Northern Agricultural Region has to offer.
From the woodlands to the sandplains, the gorges to the islands, and every river and catchment in-between, this is a wonderful part of the world. I enjoy it in my professional and personal life, either as camping and exploring with the family or off the coast, fishing and diving. To keep me busy I am also an amateur beekeeper and wood worker.
In my role as Programs and Operations Manager, I work to fulfil NACC NRM’s strategic purpose, way and impact, and the regional aspirations of NARvis. In partnership with the NACC NRM team, I work on the effective management and delivery of our key projects and investment programs, while also working collaboratively with our community to better manage our natural environment.
