Whilst this is a fantastic new era in creating a region wide team across many partners, we are unfortunately saying goodbye to two of our long-serving Community Partnerships staff. This month, Steve Bailey and Gavin Kay are moving on to new and exciting opportunities. I wish them both all the best in their new endeavours. They have contributed significantly to NRM in the Wet Tropics, and have delivered on some fantastic projects. See more about Steve and Gavin in the column to the left.
