Territorians have twice the opportunities this year to be recognised for their commitment to sustainable primary production and protecting our natural environment.
The NT Natural Resource Management (NRM) Awards and NT Landcare Awards recognise the efforts of Territorians who make an outstanding contribution to looking after their local bushland area, beach, catchment, farm or pastoral property, conservation area, cultural site or indigenous protected area.
Territory Natural Resource Management (TNRM) Chief Executive Officer Karen May is encouraging Territorians nominate someone they know for an award.
“We all know individuals and organisations who do fantastic work looking after our natural resources – landcarers, indigenous rangers, pastorals, fishers, scientists, industry groups and conservation organisations” she said.
“Sometimes people are a little shy about nominating themselves so, if you know someone doing a great job, consider nominating them – they’ll be thrilled”.
Nominations for the NT NRM Awards and NT Landcare Awards are open until midnight the 4 September.
The awards will be celebrated and winners announced at a gala dinner on the 22 November in Darwin, as part of the TNRM Conference.
