Charters Towers Reef Guardians network for the environment
The Reef Guardian Networking Meeting run by the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority (GBRMPA) allows teachers and partners to access resources, people power and information.
GBRMPA Reef Guardian Schools Acting Program Manager Carolyn Luder said the meetings have proven highly successful in establishing lasting community partnerships.
"Locals who are undertaking Reef protection activities can come together to share resources, knowledge and environmental opportunities in 2012," she said.
"They can also workshop solutions to current environmental issues in the region."
The event includes representatives from local schools and partner organisations including Charters Towers Neighbourhood Centre, Dalrymple Landcare, Charters Towers Regional Council, and the Department of Employment, Economic Development and Innovation.
Fifteen networking meetings will be held throughout the Great Barrier Reef catchment during February and March 2012.
Reef Guardian Schools is an environmental education program run by the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority.
