Be informed at the Wentworth Show
16 August 2018
Landholders, stakeholders and community members will have a great opportunity to be informed of the services on offer with Western Local Land Services at the Wentworth Show.
Staff from Western Local Land Services will be manning a trade exhibit at the 133rd annual Wentworth Show on Saturday 25 and Sunday 26 August.
Some of the things people can seek advice about includes:
- recent changes to kangaroo management licences
- agricultural production and animal welfare during the drought
- pest control, biosecurity and emergency management
- natural resource management
- sustainable land management provisions.
Recent work that will be featured at the stand includes a re-snagging project that is providing improved habitat for native fish in the lower Darling River, as well as a feral pig control program to protect the known habitat of the endangered southern bell frog in the Lake Victoria area.
Western Local Land Services will be offering a one-stop shop, with advice from a range of service providers from across the region at the show. The exhibition stand will include representatives from:
- Gotabug Pest Control Specialists
- NSW Department of Primary Industries Rural Resilience Team
- Rural Financial Counselling Service
- Rural Adversity Mental Health Program
- Saving our Species Team from the Office of Environment and Heritage.
“These two days are a fantastic opportunity for landholders and community members to have a casual chat with us and learn more about the services and support we can provide,” Senior Land Services Officer, Kaye Gottschutzke said.
“It is also a great opportunity for us to catch up with landholders and community members we have worked with in recent years and see how they are going.”
