Greens push for rangers to get a bigger say

By johnboy - 6 June 2011 1

The Greens’ Shane Rattenbury has expressed delight that the gang gang logo for the Parks and Conservation service.

But he goes on to make the dangerous suggestion that trained and experienced nature conservation managers might be well suited to having some input into the workings of the new Environment and Sustainable Development Directorate.

The Greens have written to the Government to ask them to take the opportunity of the Hawke review restructure to move nature conservation managers into the new Environment and Sustainable Development Directorate.

“Our parks service has been under increasing pressure in recent years to do more with less, and staff morale is low. Currently biodiversity managers are currently working in a different department to the people who write biodiversity policy – this isn’t the best use of their expertise.

“The Government has a great opportunity here to build a team that can deliver integrated natural resource management, something the ACT desperately needs,” said Mr Rattenbury.

Expertise in the ACT Government? Surely this won’t catch on?

I hope Rattenbury doesn’t name names. Identify someone who can do the job because they actually know what to do, and they’ll get the sack in no time at all.
