MEDIA RELEASE: NRM South’s project portfolio is in full bloom

From strength to strength – NRM South’s project portfolio is in full bloom.

From initiatives that are helping farmers in drought prone areas, to protecting a tiny freshwater native fish species found only in eastern Tasmania, NRM South continues to build an impressive portfolio of projects aimed at protecting southern Tasmania’s natural resources.

NRM South, who will be celebrating their 20th anniversary next year, have added an impressive $2.49 million of projects to their land, water, and biodiversity programs in the last financial year – bringing their active portfolio of on-ground projects up to $17.21 million. With key funding from the Australian Government and Tasmanian State Government, NRM South works across a broad range of sectors, collaborating with dozens of partners from the research, government, non-profit and industry sectors for strong, collaborative outcomes across the southern region.

Nepelle Crane, CEO for NRM South, is proud of the organisation’s recent achievements and is confident of strong future growth. ‘We’ve been working in southern Tasmania for almost two decades’, explained Nepelle, ‘The last 18 months have been the busiest we’ve seen in a long while. It’s been amazing to see how quickly our small team has grown over the last couple of years and our continued success securing funding is testament to our reputation as leaders in delivering natural resource management outcomes. I’m excited to see what the next year will bring, and we’re preparing to announce more projects very soon’.

As well as delivering projects that are helping protect endangered species, conserve habitat and support sustainable production, NRM South also produces a range of resources to help raise awareness about specific issues and what people can do to help. To find out more, visit
