What's happening at NRM South?
The Australian Government's National Landcare Programme
The Australian Government has released a National Landcare Programme Consultation Paper which outlines the principles of the new program and the proposed approach for delivery.
The release of the paper (early August) was complemented by briefing sessions throughout the country. The Australian Government is now seeking feedback on how the program can best engage the community to effective manage our natural resources.
NRM South and Landcare Tasmania are holding community information sessions 16th, 18th and 19th August to discuss the paper. More information here
Community members are also encouraged to provide feedback to the Australian Government via a survey - http://www.nrm.gov.au/funding/nlp/index.html
Feedback to the Australian Government's survey on the National Landcare Programme closes 8pm 29th August 2014.

This year NRM South is renewing the NRM Strategy for southern Tasmania. We are also undertaking projects focused on helping farmers and agricultural producers make the most of their properties and working with partners to mitigate threats to significant species, communities and places. Our focus is on engagement and partnerships with the many organisations, individuals and groups that help protect our stunning natural assets in southern Tasmania.
Making a positive difference to southern Tasmania
As one of the most environmentally diverse regions in Australia, southern Tasmania has a wealth of natural resources. Our soil, our water and our coastlines, and the vegetation and wildlife they support, underpin our economic prosperity and social wellbeing.
Natural Resource Management (NRM) is about using these resources wisely and sustainably while protecting the environment. NRM South works closely with government, landholders, research organisations, community groups and others to build partnerships, lead on-ground action, and share resources and knowledge about our region.
Ultimately, our goal is to ensure that current and future generations of Tasmanians can benefit from our remarkable environment.
