Training in land management

With their Conservation Action Plan all but completed, Ngadju Conservation is increasing their on-ground program. Training in weed identification, mapping and control was undertaken this Thursday and Friday, in a delightfully shady ‘classroom’. Training turned to action pretty fast when a nasty patch of Noogoora Burr was found during the initial weed survey at Bromus Dam. A few hours later the patch had been mapped onto the database and killed! Here Philip Coghlan and Ian Abdullah learn the CyberTracker mapping system, then Philip sprayed one of the infestations while Shealene Coghlan mapped it. Gondwana Link’s Peter Price tells us he is delighted with how the team is progressing. Formal Land Management training is part of the ongoing Malleefowl and Invasive Weed program run by Gondwana Link and supported by Rangelands NRM.
