About the Burnett Mary Regional Group
The Burnett Mary Regional Group (BMRG) is the peak body for natural resource management (NRM) for a region comprising the Burnett and Mary river catchments and the associated sub catchment areas of the Kolan, Elliott, Gregory, Baffle, Burrum and Isis rivers.
BMRG delivers practical solutions that protect and enhance our region’s natural assets. They seek to build and maintain strong, strategic partnerships with government, industry and local communities and develop targeted programs that meet specific natural resource management needs for the Burnett Mary region.
What BMRG does
One of 14 regional bodies that cover Queensland, BMRG directs investment into community based programs and work closely with government, industry, community groups and individual landholders to implement projects that deliver positive outcomes in the areas of water quality, ecological diversity, sustainable land management practice, cultural heritage values and coastal and marine management.
The interconnectedness of ecosystems, species and the natural environment must be maintained and is an important component of a sustainable future. The goal for BMRG is to understand the issues that impact upon our natural systems and to find ways to address these issues.
Promoting partnerships for a sustainable future
The key to providing positive environmental outcomes lies in forming strong and resilient partnerships. They collaborate with federal, state and local government, Industry and community groups, Traditional owners and research institutions. Engaging communities and increasing their capacity and participation in natural resource management is also a priority. BMRG is committed to creating a wider understanding of natural resource management issues and creating a balance between resource conservation and resource use and building a sustainable future for the region.
