Whit­sun­day Catch­ment Land­care has a new home in Proser­pine

Whitsunday Times - - COMMUNITY NEWS -

WHIT­SUN­DAY Catch­ment Land­care Group has re­lo­cated from the Whit­sun­day Re­gional Coun­cil of­fice to the Reef Catch­ments Of­fice at 45 Main Street, Proser­pine.

“Sharing an of­fice with Reef Catch­ments makes per­fect sense. Both our or­gan­i­sa­tions work with land­hold­ers, coun­cil and other groups to look af­ter the nat­u­ral re­sources of the re­gion,” Whit­sun­day Catch­ment Land­care (WCL) chair Gra­ham Arm­strong said.

Reef Catch­ment Limited man­ager John Franklin, who is based in Proser­pine, be­lieved be­ing able to work more closely with Land­care would be of real ben­e­fit to Reef Catch­ments.

“We al­ready con­tract Land­care to de­liver reveg­e­ta­tion, weed con­trol and other ac­tiv­i­ties for lots of our pro­jects. In­stead of pick­ing up the phone I can now walk down the cor­ri­dor,” Mr Franklin said. “Or­gan­i­sa­tions such as Reef Catch­ments and WCL work with the com­mu­nity to en­sure that to­gether we are look­ing af­ter our nat­u­ral re­sources so that they con­tinue to pro­vide for us in the future.”

Reef Catch­mens Cheif Ex­ec­u­tive Of­fi­cer Rob Cocco firmly be­lieved work­ing to­gether made the best use of the limited dol­lars for nat­u­ral re­source man­age­ment.

“This ef­fi­ciency is crit­i­cal when gov­ern­ment has limited money and so many pri­or­i­ties to try and bal­ance,” he said.

NEW HOME: WCL co­or­di­na­tor Jac­quie Sheils, Reef Catch­ments CEO Rob Cocco, WCL Chair Gra­ham Arm­strong and Reef Catch­ments Man­ager John Franklin cel­e­brate new premises for Whit­sun­day Catch­ment Land­care in Proser­pine.
