The Ranges Link team have a reputation for incorporating scones, jam and cream and great sandwiches into their planning workshops. But this is only one of their strategies for success, decades of knowledge, years of work and astute judgement calls have helped as well. The team is now implementing their Conservation Action Plan (CAP) through replanting, mapping particular vegetation systems to build their knowledge-base, strategic fencing that excludes stock but incorporates wallaby gates, and monitoring wallabies. CAP guru’s Paula Deegan (left in photo) and Barry Heydenrych have been funded by Gondwana Link program to help with Ranges Link. As in this planning session with group members Peter Luscombe, Lucia Quearry, Judy Hunt and Heather Adams.
