Our vision is King Island being a world leader in integrated sustainable production and quality living.
Our mission is to promote co-ordinated and integrated management of natural resources, which will contribute to the economic and environmental sustainability of King Island.
The King Island Natural Resource Management Group successfully delivers a wide range of environmental/agricultural projects, and is instrumental in assisting land managers and the community to manage King Island's natural resources. The group was formed in 1997 with representatives of local Landcare groups and other relevant organisations. Anyone interested in King Island environment is welcome to contact us or attend or monthly meetings.
* Congratulations to the wonderful team of Wings on King for the very successful launch of the project, which aims to use bird moitoring as a key indicator of the island's environmental health. This is wonderful example of citizen science, supported by a strong team of ornitholigists and ecologists.
