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 .
