In this wonderful interview by Richard Fidler with Landline’s Pip Courtney, the beginnings of Landcare, an unlikely alliance between Farmers and ACF and other important issues of land management are explored. Have a listen!
The NSW Department of Primary Industry is asking for comments on a new Weeds – Discussion Paper as part of the new Biosecurity Act 2015 which will repeal the Noxious Weeds Act 1993 (NW Act). The Act provides regulatory controls and powers to manage noxious weeds in NSW.
The Biosecurity Act:
- Embeds the principle of shared responsibility for biosecurity risks (including weeds) between the government, community and industry; and,
- Is tenure neutral, meaning that the Biosecurity Act will apply equally to all land in the state, regardless of whether it is publically or privately owned; and,
- Supports regional planning and management for weeds, as recommended by the Review of Weeds Management in NSW.
On Friday April 8th, 2016 we will be holding an exciting seminar “Conservation, Preservation and Restoration” featuring leading research scientists from the Botanic Gardens about their work in genetics, seed conservation and natural area restoration – a must for Land Managers and anybody interested in understanding the future of natural area restoration and the application of genetics.
More information will be posted shortly as well as a detailed agenda.
