Constitution guidance support documentsDate Added: Monday, 30 July 2018
As part of our Increasing capability and resilience of the south coast NRM community project, which is supported by funding from the Western Australian Government’s State NRM Program, supported by Royalties for Regions, we are pleased to be able to present NRM community groups in the south coast region with guidance documents to assist compliance with the new Associations Incorporation Act 2015.
There are six documents in total. These are:
1. Constitution Guidance Checklist – a checklist to be used as guidance notes to complete a new constitution as required under the new Act.
2. Template Constitution for Incorporated Associations – a template constitution appropriate for NRM community groups with items highlighted in yellow that need to be completed or changed.
3. Ongoing Compliance Checklist for Associations Incorporation Act 2015 – a checklist which provides an overview of the regulatory requirements applicable to the day-to-day operation of incorporated associations under the Act.
4. Incorporated Associations Information Statement – a statement template from the Department for Mines, Industry Regulation and Safety website which needs to be submitted annually to the Commissioner within 6 months after the end of each financial year. (www.commerce.wa.gov.au/publications/information-statement-associations)
5. Balance Sheet Template – a financial statement template from the Australian Government’s Business website (www.business.gov.au). This is a snapshot of your business on a particular date and gives a good indication of the financial health of your business.
6. Profit and Loss Statement Template – a financial template from the Australian Government’s Business website (www.business.gov.au). This gives your group an indication of profit which can be recorded monthly, quarterly or yearly.

This report, prepared for North Stirlings Pallinup Natural Resources by Steve and Geraldine Janicke, outlines the results of a detailed survey of the environmental condition of 43 kilometers of the Middle Pallinup River floodway. The Pallinup is a highly degraded river and the report rests its assertions and conclusions relative to this.

Governance GuideDate Added: Tuesday, 07 February 2017
For our community groups to continue to grow and deliver the great natural resource management work they do, there needs to be a solid foundation. Good governance provides that. This handbook is intended to help sub-regional groups across the South Coast NRM region critically assess and improve where necessary their governance practices.
The handbook will cover the following areas around governance:
- Safety and Health
- Contracts and project management
- Legal and finances
It contains a range of templates, draft policies and procedures that can be adapted for use.
If there is something you think we should be including, please let us know. We will update this document as new information comes to hand.
Australasian BitternDate Added: Monday, 19 October 2015
The Australasian Bittern - The Bunyip Bird
The Australasian Bittern (Botaurus poiciloptilus) is a large (66-76 cm) stocky, thick-necked heron with mottled buff and brown plumage. These shy and unobtrusive birds prefer vegetated freshwater wetlands with reeds, sedges and rushes. Their highly cryptic plumage and retiring habits make them difficult to detect — often it is only their calls which advertise their presence.
Check out attached flyer for more information on this endangered bird.
Bringing Oysters Back to Oyster HarbourDate Added: Friday, 09 October 2015
In a Western Australian first, The Nature Conservancy Australia (TNC) has partnered with The University of Western Australia, Recfishwest and South Coast Natural Resource Management Inc. (South Coast NRM) to restore lost shellfish
reefs in Oyster Harbour, Albany.
Native oyster reefs and mussel beds are nature’s water filters and provide homes and food for a huge range of marine life including many important fish species. Sadly, 85% of shellfish reefs have been lost worldwide, making it the most threatened marine habitat on earth.
Read more about this exciting project in the attached flier.

South Coast NRM has developed this Community Engagement
Protocol and Guidelines to help project officers across the region
engage with their communities effectively to:
1. Make joint decisions, and
2. Bring about positive behavior changes in natural resource
The guidelines are not prescriptive, rather they provide prompts to
help people ask questions and think deeply before acting!
South Coast NRM expects all of its project officers and anyone
delivering projects funded by South Coast NRM to meet the highest standards.
