Southern Gulf NRM is a not-for-profit community organisation working through partnerships to
implement strategic planning and investment activities that care for our region’s natural and cultural assets.


Southern Gulf NRM and the COVID-19 Virus

Like every responsible organisation in Australia, Southern Gulf NRM must join the massive community effort underway to minimise the rate of spread of the COVID-19 virus.  This will disrupt elements of our work, but we are proud to be playing our part in keeping our community healthy.

We will constantly monitor and be guided by the direction and advice of government health departments and our regional local governments.  We will also respect and conform to the COVID-19 responses of our delivery partners and clients.

Southern Gulf NRM Producer Performance Groups from Julia Creek, Richmond and Hughenden had the opportunity to have one on one discussions with David Hardwick from Soil Land Food on the web💻 David is considered one of the best in the 'soil health' business and what we call a Soil Guru😊

The outcome of the webinars saw our Rangelands Officer Anne Alison travel to each of the participants properties and collect soil samples. The samples will then be sent away to the laboratory and the results will give producers a better understanding of the health of their soil and land to help determine if the soil is healthy, or has constraints.

The event was organised by Southern Gulf NRM and supported by funding from the Australian Government's National Landcare Program. National Landcare Program Australian Department of Agriculture, Water and the Environment Soil Land Food

Dr Sally Box who is the Threatened Species Commissioner is encouraging everyone to create an artistic depiction of their favourite threatened species. #CraftACritter

To win this completion they need your vote✔️visit the Threatened Species Commissioner Facebook, Twitter or Instagram page and vote before 5pm AEST 3rd June 2020. McKinlay Shire Council Threatened Species Commissioner #juliacreekdunnart #mckinlay #southerngulf #northqueensland

VOTE TODAY WE HAVE!!! CLICK ON THE PHOTO🤞Julia Creek Dunnart (Sminthopsis douglasi) – Open Category - Instagram: kikadee.creations

“A Julia Creek dunnart (Sminthopsis douglasi) in defence mode. JCDs are the largest of the dunnart species. They are endemic to central/western Qld in the Mitchell Grasslands. During the dry seasons, they utilise large cracks in clay for cover. JCDs are classified as endangered in Qld, however little is known about their actual population size. Their biggest threats are habitat degradation from heavy grazing, soil compaction from livestock, Prickly Acacia; and predation from cats. When I was a ranger, I was lucky enough to be involved in a JCD survey. Unfortunately, this survey was in conjunction with the native Long-haired rat (Rattus villosissimus) boom, where feral cat numbers were also high. I am worried about the impact these cats have on JCD’s, particularly following the bust of the rat population.”
