After some key announcements in early May, over the past month we have been working with community conservation groups and taking the first steps towards finding a joint venture partner.

Expressions of Interest to join CSIRO as a joint venture partner closed on May 23 and we are currently undertaking an evaluation process before shortlisting ahead of a formal tender process.

CSIRO also hosted a site visit with member groups of the Conservation Council last week. This was attended by representatives from the Friends of Grasslands, Ginninderra Catchment Group, and Conservation Council’s Biodiversity Working Group.

CSIRO is well placed to significantly address these important issues because of our coverage of relevant research areas and our capacity to draw on all of these and engage the right collaborators and partners.
