Final plan / implementation (post-Nov 2015)

Welcome to the Burnett Mary’s natural resource management plan – a strategic framework for managing the region’s natural resources, through non-statutory actions.  This website IS the plan.  It is supported by linked materials that include online and static maps, asset background reports and a Program of Activities that details recent and current projects aligned to the plan’s targets.  This is a plan for ALL of the Burnett Mary’s natural resource managers, not just BMRG! Explore the plan’s pages and links to discover how it relates to you and your group.  Contact us… we’d love to hear from you.

Climate Infographic

Climate projections suggest a Burnett Mary future with more hot days, more severe fire weather and continuing rises in sea level and maximum temperatures. For more detail see the display below and our Projected Climate Change 2030/2090 document.

Targets

All of the plan’s asset targets have been compiled for quick reference.  For more detailed information on each asset see the assets link in the website header section.

Plan Implementation

Suggested implementing activities, aligned to the plan’s 2020 targets and identified in the asset background papers are collated in the plan’s Program of Activities. This document also includes an overview of recent and current, funded programs and projects that align to the targets. It represents a first step in documenting delivery of actions to address the plan’s targets.
