Landcare and other NRM support workers support verifying environmental and animal welfare credential


More than seven out of ten Landcare support people deem a national voluntary system for improving and verifying natural resource and animal welfare management would be greatly advantageous for landholders and for those individuals like themselves, whose charter is to support better outcomes.

This important finding comes from a national survey of Landcare and NRM support people whose responses also illustrate the importance of the verification tool having features that together address the multiple factors influencing improvement.

These survey results extend and support the need for voluntary farm certification as advocated by a broadly representative group at a Symposium in Brisbane in June 2014 and more recently by the Wentworth Group of Concerned Scientists and by WWF-Australia.
