Film sparks interest in Natural Resources
13 July 2015
Those passionate about Eyre Peninsula and the sustainable use of natural resources are encouraged to attend a community workshop for the new Eyre Peninsula Natural Resources Management Plan.
A video titled, Love EP has been developed with locals to highlight their passion for the region and encourage community participation.
Presiding Member of the Eyre Peninsula Natural Resources Management Board, Diana Laube is keen to reflect community values in the new plan, and said the video has captured this perfectly.
“Thank you to the twelve locals who shared their cherished messages about the Eyre Peninsula,” Ms Laube said.
“It definitely gives us an inspirational starting point to open conversations about the landscapes we live in and how to look after them.”
Barngarla woman Emma Richards features in the video and reminds us of the cultural connection to country.
“The Eyre Peninsula is such a beautiful place and you don’t have to step out far from your front door to find that,” Ms Richards said.
“The tides, the sea, the land, it’s all got story to tell.”
All are invited to participate in the development of the new plan and are encouraged to view Love EP to share the memories and experiences of the local community.
“Eyre Peninsula is facing some future challenges including less water, a hotter climate and a changing ocean,” Ms Laube said.
