Coastal Projects Coordinator
In late 2011, Rangelands NRM and Coastwest secured funding through the Caring For our Country (CFoC) program for a Coastal Projects Coordinator to operate in Northern Western Australia. This coordinator assisted community groups in obtaining funding through Coastwest Grants and assisted organisations in repairing those human uses currently having a negative impact on the rangelands coast through initiatives such as interpretive signage, track rationalisation, invasive species control, fencing and natural revegetation. They also worked on a series of Climate Change Vulnerability workshops in 2012-2013.
