UPDATE 12 JUNE 2020 

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.
