Governance Guide

Date 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:

  • Committee
  • Staff
  • 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.

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 Harbour

Bringing Oysters Back to Oyster Harbour

Date 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.

Community Engagement Handbook

Date Added: Thursday, 20 August 2015

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
management.


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.
