New Associate Directors

Two associate directors have been appointed to Gulf Savannah NRM’s board.

Shannon Rae and Donald Murray were welcomed as part of GSNRM’s Emerging Leaders Program and will advise and make recommendations to the board, while developing their governance skills.

Shannon Rae is a station manager on a large-scale breeder property in the Gulf.

‘This new position is an opportunity to give back to the local community and support the important work Gulf Savannah NRM delivers for the region. I would like to help bridge the disconnect between consumers and the agricultural industry by sharing the stories of our passionate primary producers, as well as showcasing to school leavers all the opportunities the industry has to offer,’ said Ms Rae.

Donald Murray from Mareeba is a former Organic Farmer of the Year and manages the organic farming business Nature’s Haven.

‘I have been involved in natural resource management throughout my working life — both on farm and businesses serving the agricultural industry. I hope to contribute towards positive environmental impacts while maintaining viable outcomes for landowners and communities,’ said Mr Murray.

Gulf Savannah NRM’s board members are Ellen Weber (Chair), Emeritus Professor Chris Cocklin (Director), Kate Eden (Director), Nick Hardy (Director) and Anne Clarke (Director).
