A look at the 2018 Environment FNQ Roundtable
After the success of the 2016 event, CAFNEC hosted the 2018 Environment FNQ Roundtable keeping with the 3-day format.
To extend the event broadly across the sector and the region we partnered with the Wet Tropics Management Authority (WTMA), Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority (GBRMPA), Terrain NRM, Cape York NRM, Northern Gulf Resource Management Group (RMG) and the Environmental Defender’s Office of Northern Queensland (EDO NQ) to deliver the event.
The event was held at The Northern Outlook Facility in Redlynch Valley, on Djabugay country. A spectacular venue, allowing us to be outside with the rainforest backdrop. Barry Hunter, a Djabugay man, gave attendees an introduction to the cultural landscape of the valley, giving context to the surrounding country.
