IN FOCUS

The FBG is a community driven organisation focusing on local issues with a 'ground-up' approach.

  • RESEARCH - Continually working to identify local production and natural resource management issues and then researching, demonstrating and assisting in the implementation of broad scale innovative and sustainable management practices to address these.
  • MARKETING - Continually working to attract project partners and sponsors to the Fitzgerald Biosphere Group.
  • EDUCATION - Working at all levels within the community to increase the awareness and level of understanding of production and natural resource management issues and management options through a range of media.
  • ENVIRONMENT - With a strong Landcare ethic, the group and wider community continues to work towards conserving biodiversity (both at the paddock and landscape scale) recognising the uniqueness of the area and the need for an integrated approach to address production and environmental issues.
