It was a special day for Landcare and for our members Sue Marriott and Rob Youl when they got Australia Day “gongs “ – a great recognition of their work over the years for Landcare at home and abroad. The awards are given by the Australian Government to people across all walks of life for service to the community in various forms.
Sue’s AM (Australia Medal) award is for service to conservation and the environment through the Secretariat for International Landcare, particularly the development of programs dealing with climate change and rural land management.
Rob got his OAM (Order of Australia Medal) award for service to conservation and the environment in Victoria through the Landcare movement.
ALI is proud of both of them and it puts international Landcare in the public space.
