Simon Corbell has announced he’s signed off on a new Nature Conservation Strategy:
The strategy has a strong ‘people focus’ that recognises the key role that the community plays in nature conservation in the ACT. Actions include:
— community education campaigns on priority conservation issues such as managing the urban/bushland edge, and understanding the impacts of climate change on biodiversity;
— building Indigenous engagement in natural resource management;
— encouraging the involvement of young Canberrans in nature based education;
— supporting appropriate recreational and tourism use of natural areas; and
— continuing to develop collaborative partnerships across government, community and the private sector.
