Another day, another planning session?

Bit more than that this time actually. This group of stalwarts have just spent two days reviewing and revising the long standing ‘Functional Landscape Plan’ for Gondwana Links Fitz-Stirling section. The plan was first developed in 2004, revised a number of times since, and has guided many millions of dollars worth of land purchase, restoration and management. Six groups involved in this session, and they were still game to turn the plan upside down and give it a good shake on the basis of recent experience and research. So next time someone waffles on about ‘adaptive management’ and integration, make sure you tell them it does happen here!
