DEPWS: Finding the Balance – Territory Environment Podcast is now live.

The new Territory Environment Podcast is now live!

We are very excited to announce that the new Territory Environment podcast is now live.

During our monthly segments we discuss everything about what it takes to lead and support the conservation, management and sustainable use of the Territory environment. Topics will include managing water, mapping and managing soil and vegetation, regulating industry that operates within the environment, protecting biodiversity and our work to manage weeds and feral animals to allow native species to survive and thrive.

Maybe it’s the science and work behind bushfires and what fuels Territory fires in your region or what it takes to manage the conservation and visitation across the Territory parks and reserves estates that interests you.

Whatever it is, you’re sure to find an episode that takes your interest.

Below is a sample of the first 3 episodes available for listening.

The first episode covers Crocodile conservation and Management.

Your host Phillipa Hunter is joined by Dr. Tim Clancy the Director of Information and Advice with the Flora and Fauna division, and Kristen Hay the Director Wildlife Operations with NT Parks and Wildlife.

They discuss these amazing prehistoric creatures, and tell us what to expect at the 27th Working Meeting of the IUCN Species Survival Commission (SSC) Crocodile Specialist Group. They also touch on the feedback on the consultation of the Saltwater Crocodile Management Plan due for final release at the conference.

The second episode takes a deep dive into the Rangelands division for the Territory Environment.

Monica Richly hosts the show with guests Alana Mackay, Director Pastoral Branch, Rebecca de Vries, Director Development Coordination and Christine Plewinski, Land Development Facilitator.

They take us behind the scenes of the 40th Anniversary Northern Territory Cattleman’s Association conference, and discuss what it is the Rangelands division do to support the pastoral industry and land holders in the use and management of land and vegetation.

The third episode is called Let’s talk annual Announced Allocations (AA’s) for water licence holders in the Top End.

Your host Phillipa is joined by Dale, Chief water modeller, Peter, Senior Hydrologist and Andrew Johnson PSM, the Controller of Water Resources.

They discuss how water resources undertake water modelling, and the climate conditions to present the expected water licence entitlements - to preserve environmental flow thresholds within river systems. They also discuss the upcoming announced allocations for the Top End in line with the coming new water year on 1 May.

Got a question or idea?

We want to hear from you! If you have any questions about any of the shows, or would like to suggest a topic that you want to know more about, then please reach out.

You might want to know about the differences between the aquifers in a Top End or Arid Region, what we do to ensure we are a modern environmental regulator and the innovation in this space.

No matter what the topic, if it’s got to do with the Territory Environment and managing and protecting the Territory’s natural resources and environment, then drop us a line at communications.depws@nt.gov.au and we will do our best to answer your questions or add it to our show line up.
