Natural Resource Management

A strategic plan for natural resource management has been developed that states as its vision for NEWROC: to be progressive and vibrant region that protects and enhances natural resources fro conservation, lifestyle and economic benefit.
In recognition of the NEWROC efforts a wide variety of organizations (at a regional, State and National level) have shown their support by offering assistance to NEWROC to achieve their vision for the region. A formal partnership has been signed between NEWROC and the World Wide Find for Nature.
