Community

For the purpose of this Strategy, the community are comprised of two distinct segments – natural resource management groups and the general public.

Natural resource management groups such as NRM regional bodies, Landcare and Friends groups play a vital role in the protection and management of natural assets across the Swan Region. They coordinate on-ground action and community involvement at the local level and also act as the community voice for the environment.

The general public can contribute to natural resource management through their everyday decisions and actions. Many of the actions identified in this Strategy are designed to raise the public’s awareness of the significance of the Region’s natural resources and the practical actions that can be implemented to preserve these assets.
