The all Australia collective effort!
The group who undertook Conservation Planning skills development in Mildura, 2003
A number of Gondwana Link associates were able to attend The Nature Conservancy’s second Conservation Planning Efromyson workshop in Australia, led by the guru himself, TNC’s Greg Low. An excellent opportunity, not just for skill development, but also to meet and swap notes with like-minded colleagues from across Australia. The week at Mildura included experience of an (unscheduled) major dust storm and concluded with a trip to Neds Corner station on the Murray River – recently purchased by Victoria’s Trust for Nature. Great for us westerners to be part of a national approach. (Site Conservation Planning is a spreadsheet-based technique developed by The Nature Conservancy to guide the integrated management of on-site projects in the states and elsewhere.” Gondwana Link crew are keen to be trained with a view to using it for the detailed planning in the Corackerup-Peniup area.)
