Queensland NRM Network
‘Working together for State-wide Sustainability’
Southern Gulf NRM is part of a network of natural resource management bodies in Australia. There are 54 across Australia with the regions determined by river catchment boundary lines.
In Queensland there are 12 independent, not-for-profit NRM bodies which together, in 2012, formed the NRM Regions Queensland.
As a team, the network covers this great state from the Great Barrier Reef coastline, through rainforests, to rangelands. We are able to coordinate state-wide programs and to provide a forum for the regional bodies to collaborate and support each other.
We are all local, we know the lay of the land in our regions and we are trusted by the strong community networks that we live and work with.
While our regions and communities are unique, our work is similar. Each member of our NRM network is working with their communities to make a difference to the environment through the sustainable use of natural resources.
We are all delivering projects related to:
- Land management
- Nature conservation (biodiversity)
- Healthy waterways and water quality
- Catchment repair
- Sustainable farming and soil management
- Weed and pest management
- Climate resilience
In total we have a workforce of more than 300 people on the ground in rural communities who can respond quickly to changing situations including drought, cyclones, floods and fires.
