Doug Evans from the Nillumbik Landcare Network provided an overview of the Open Standards for Conservation Management in action. The Nillumbik Landcare Network works to connect local landholders to nature, and helps to build their skills and knowledge in biodiversity management.
Nillumbik began implementing the Open Standards approach in 2014, in pursuit of practical and cost-effective measures of environmental health in their region. Doug reports that the Open Standards were vital in shaping their approach and helping Nillumbik Landcare Network to define their assets, threats, and management priorities.
