Healthy Landscape Projects
TNRM are working to establish and maintain soil and water health, and promote healthy natural habitats to preserve the rich biodiversity and natural resources of the Northern Territory
Territory Natural Resource Management is working collaboratively with land managers, ranger groups and other organisations across the West Arnhem and Kakadu region, including the ecologically significant Arnhem Land Sandstone Plateau, to protect environmental assets from impacts of weeds, feral animals and destructive fires.
Our priorities include preventing spread of gamba grass and other priority weeds; managing buffalo and other priority feral animals to reduce impacts on the region; supporting fire management to improve the condition of the Arnhem Land Sandstone Plateau; increasing community awareness about priority threats (i.e. weeds, ferals) to World Heritage Area, Ramsar wetlands and Arnhem Land Sandstone Plateau values; and supporting collaborative planning and action to manage threats.
A PLAN FOR ACTION
The 2021-2025 NT Natural Resource Management Plan provides an overarching five year strategy for maintaining and enhancing the condition of our land and water resources, the productivity of our soils and the health of our natural habitats and biodiversity.
The plan has been established through extensive consultation to capture community priorities across the Territory and is underpinned by the latest science. By structuring the plan into four regions we reflect the diversity of the Territory landscapes and give a stronger voice to our regional stakeholders.
