NRM South is inviting Expressions of Interests from individuals wishing to be considered for appointment as a member of the Protecting some of Australia’s most threatened flora and communities: Morrisby’s gum, Southport heath and black or Brookers gum forest and woodland project Steering Committee.
This project will achieve conservation outcomes for Tasmanian forest and woodlands dominated by black gum or Brookers gum (Eucalyptus ovata / E. Brookeriana), a Threatened Ecological Community recently listed under the EPBC Act. It also includes two of southern Tasmania’s most threatened plants species, the EPBC-listed Morrisby’s gum (Eucalyptus morrisbyi) and Southport heath (Epacris stuartii). These species are listed under the Threatened Species Strategy of 20 priority threatened flora species. The 3 year project is funded until June 2023 by the Australian Government under the Regional Land Partnerships component of the National Landcare Program (phase 2).
Applications close at 5pm on 14 August 2020.
