Feedback from Land Managers
When surveyed about the value of the Fluker Post project, here is what some of the land managers involved have said:
"We were looking for a heightened way of engaging the community. I actually thought this would be a good mechanism that not only engages them and brings them along but also empowers them to feel a sense of ownership and involvement in managing the environment"
"It's an opportunity to bring the community along in an even stronger way given that they’ve been part of that program to various measures on community working bees. This also makes a stronger connection, ownership, etc., with the site as well and people feel like they may be contributing"
"What we were hoping for, when we put the photo point posts in, was to get some valuable monitoring data of how these sites have progressed over time. Often, what really tells a story are visual tools"
The Fluker Post project welcomes collaborations with academics from a range of disciplines. If you would like to be involved, please email Martin.Fluker@vu.edu.au
