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.

Widespread rain means the time is right to burn grasswren habitat

Southern Gulf NRM will implement controlled burns from the 15th to the 19th of February at Calton Hills Station and Thorntonia Station, North West of Mount Isa. The general public are advised to stay clear of the properties while the burn program is being undertaken.

The fire management project is a partnership between the participating stations’ management, Queensland Fire and Emergency Services and BirdLife Australia that aims to protect the habitat of the nationally endangered Carpentarian Grasswren.

How does satellite technology help manage a beef enterprise?

The Normalised Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI) is a simple graphical indicator that can be used to analyse remote sensing measurements, often from a space platform, assessing whether or not the target being observed contains live green vegetation.

Tim Driver heads up the implementation of the satellite pasture monitoring and walk-over-weigh systems. In this video he explains NDVI which stands for: Normalised Difference Vegetation Index.
