    Central Regional TAFE NACC Scholarship in Conservation and Land Management

    The scholarship program is designed to encourage more students into the area of conservation and land management training programs in WA’s Midwest. To be successful, applicants must be looking to study a Certificate II, III, IV, or Diploma of Conservation and Land Management (CALM) at the Central Regional TAFE's Batavia Coast Maritime Institute in Geraldton.  Successful recipients will gain real ‘in the field’ work experience – with highly trained professionals – at a number of different locations, including work on an important restoration project at the Abrolhos islands. The skills gained will be broadly transferable to a variety of industries – from agriculture, fishing and mining, to tourism and parks and wildlife.

    Abrolhos islands Restoration Project
    The Abrolhos islands are a chain of 122 islands that lie approximately 70 km off the coast of Geraldton. With over 144 species of native plants, the islands of the Abrolhos offer unique and diverse habitats ranging from limestone flats, coastal heathlands and saltmarsh to large dune systems and mangroves. These habitats provide refuge to a range of animals, many of which are not found anywhere else, and have extremely vulnerable populations.  Introduced weeds, clearing of vegetation, rubbish and human disturbance has led to changes in the natural habitat that many of these animals rely on. As a result, many populations no longer exist and a number of species are now listed as threatened or endangered.  In response, Central Regional TAFE's Batavia Coast Maritime Institute (BCMI) in partnership with the Northern Agricultural Catchments Council (NACC), with funding from the Australian Government, are working together to restore habitat at key sites across the Abrolhos islands. Through strategic restoration activities the project aims to protect these habitats whilst engaging and providing valuable skills to students and members of the community.
