Acknowledgment of country

NQ Dry Tropics acknowledges the Traditional Owners of land and sea country across our region and pay respect to their Elders past and present .
We recognise their continuing relationship and cultural connection to country and , in the spirit of reconciliation , seek to work in partnership to manage country for lasting shared benefit .

Welcoming a familiar face back to the fold ...

Neil Cupples ( pictured ) has returned to NQ

Dry Tropics after a stint working for the NSW Soil Conservation Service . We ’ re glad to welcome him back as LDC Grazing Team Leader . His previous role with the company was as Soil Conservation Officer , focusing mostly on the Upper and Eastern Burdekin areas . He ’ s familiar with the BBB because he has completed landscape rehabilitation projects in the catchment .

... and a new face ( Marc ) to the MERI role

Marc McConnell ( pictured ) is the Monitoring and Evaluation ( M & E ) Officer for the LDC project and brings a wealth of experience with him . We asked him to introduce himself : Connecting sustainable agriculture with ecology is my great passion . I grew up on a sheep station in Western NSW and being the middle child , there wasn ’ t a job too hot , too dusty or too unpleasant that I did not do .
