This ‘3 Year Plan’ presents strategic direction to ensure Wheatbelt NRM effectively responds to national, state and regional NRM needs. This will be achieved by engaging our community to actively support and progress our strategic objectives. This ‘3 Year Plan’ is supported each year by an Operations Plan that sets out how resources will be allocated and utilised in progressing the strategic objectives in this document.
The Wheatbelt Regional NRM Strategy guides NRM investment priorities within the region. The regional community provided important guidance to the development of the strategy, which reflects their values and understanding of the environment they live in and know.
Between the 2015 and 2017 winter planting seasons, more than a million native seedlings have gone into the ground as part of Wheatbelt NRM’s Bushcare Grant, Healthy Bushland, Mortlock Connections and Twenty Million Trees projects.
Rabbit populations in the Wheatbelt and across the south-west of WA could be reduced by around 40% in the coming weeks, as the calicivirus (Korean variant – RHDV1 K5) is released throughout the region to overcome growing rabbit numbers.
The New Year is a time to resolve to do something different, better, less or more. Resolving to adopt some environmentally friendly actions, will see multiple positive changes to your wallet, your time, your health and the environment.
