Department of Environment and Natural Resources puts out call for training nominations

The Department of Environment and Natural Resources has put out the call for two people to take part in specialised training and a research trip to Queensland under a new Natural Resource Management program.

Nominations are currently being accepted for the training initiative, named the Natural Resource Management (NRM) Champions program.

It’s a sponsored training package for the pastoral industry which provides a range of exciting and personalised opportunities for two individuals to develop their skills and knowledge in NRM.

A trip to western Queensland to learn about the devastating impact of prickly acacia (Vachellia nilotica) on pastoral land is one of the many highlights. The program begins on 1 August 2017 and nominations close on 5 June.

The two self-starters will need to demonstrate:

  • an active interest in land management
  • long term commitment to the pastoral industry
  • a desire to learn and implement actions leading to sustainable rangelands management.

The program is funded through the Established Pest Animals and Weeds initiative, part of the Australian Government’s Agricultural Competitiveness White Paper that aims to develop stronger farmers and a stronger economy.Read more information about the NRM Champions Program.
