The coastal strip of the NAR is extremely important to the NAR community. Whether you are living on the coast or 200km inland, most of the population of the NAR have some connection to our coastal environments.
NACC NRM is excited to announce a new role in the NACC team which will provide support to coastal community groups across the Northern Agricultural Region. The new Coastcare Support Officer role is currently vacant with recruitment underway.
Photomon is a photo-monitoring smartphone app designed for recording and ‘databasing’ environmental change over time. It’s a great tool to support natural resource management projects, simplifying monitoring efforts whilst improving the quality of results.
The Coastcare Support Officer role will be based in the region and be required to travel to coastal communities all over the Northern Agricultural Region to engage with and support community groups, schools and relevant local government authorities.
