Celebrating the wins
22 December 2015
The Kangaroo Island Natural Resources Management Board and Natural Resources Kangaroo Island (NRKI) wishes the KI community all the best over the festive season.
Included in this edition of the paper is NRKI’s annual achievements report. Why not put your feet up on the couch or recline on your deck chair and take a moment to look through the report.
NR KI regional manager Damian Miley hopes the festive season will bring rest and relaxation, good times with family and friends, and a chance to enjoy the natural beauty of the island.
“The local achievers awards are open now for nominations. The Board is encouraging people to nominate individuals, businesses or groups for the local achievers awards.”
Nominations for the awards close on 8 January 2016. Guidelines and the entry form can be collected from the Natural Resources Centre at 37 Dauncey Street, Kingscote or can be downloaded from www.landscape.sa.gov.au/ki/get-involved
The awards will be presented at the KI Australia Day celebration in conjunction with the Kangaroo Island Council’s Citizen of the Year Awards. The ceremony will be held at Hope cottage, Kingscote on 25 January 2016.
“2016 will bring new challenges and learnings,” Mr Miley said. We hope that private and federal funding will be secured for the roll-out of the feral cat eradication project; the new NRM plan will be available for consultation; and new partnerships will be formed while existing partnerships will be strengthened.
“Working together in good faith, much can be achieved. So until then, stay safe, be happy and we’ll see you in the New Year!”
