RBMS sponsoring the Waterway Management Twinning Program in 2017

We are pleased to announce that the RBMS are funding a mentee scholarship for the 2017 Waterway Management Twinning Program.

Lisa Duncan, of Goulburn-Broken CMA has been selected as the successful candidate for the RBMS mentee position in 2017. Lisa’s project ‘Native fish improvement in Barmah Forest’ will review current water management strategies and 10 years of monitoring data in Barmah Forest to better understand distribution, abundance and habitat preferences and identify new options for management and monitoring of native fish in The Living Murray Icon Site Barmah-Millewa Forest.

You can read more about Lisa’s reflections on the program to date here.

About the program

The Waterway Management Twinning Program provides mentoring and professional development opportunities for people involved in the management and protection of Victorian waterways. The Twinning Program is a collaboration between the Australian River Restoration Centre and Glenelg Hopkins CMA with support from DELWP.

Throughout the nine-month program mentors will work with their mentees to further develop an existing waterway management project of the mentee. In addition, all participants come together on three occasions throughout the Program for professional development workshops facilitated by Dr Siwan Lovett, Director of the Australian River Restoration Centre.
