Stories and case studies about our work in the Wheatbelt will be promoted at two upcoming conferences in WA.
In early September we will be presenting at the Threatened Species Conference to be held in Geraldton where we will demonstrate our new online application that aims to help community members assess whether their patch of bush could be considered part of the Eucalypt Woodlands Threatened Ecological Community.
Then in October, we will be part of the program at the WA State NRM and Coastal Conference to be held in Joondalup.
At this conference, we will share how over the last 10 years we have worked to develop the Noongar Budjar Ranger program to the point where they are self-funded and working 2-3 days per week, providing employment opportunities in the community.
We will also share the history and development of the well-known Red Card for Rabbits and Foxes program which started off as a competition between two communities and now involves over 1000 people across the agricultural region of WA culling over 6000 ferals each year.
Programs have now been released for both conferences and include a dynamic range of speakers and topics.
If you are keen to attend you can register now.
We haven’t heard as yet but sometimes there are subsidies available for community members wanting to attend so keep an eye out for updates here and we’ll make sure we let you know.
