Partnerships

Embarking on your own fish habitat project may seem a bit daunting. Here are a few hints and tips on how to get your project up and running.

A strategic partnership could be the key to the success of your project. The benefits of working with other recreational fishers, neighbouring land holders, local landcare or river care groups, and/or government agencies include:

  • sharing the work load
  • sharing skills and knowledge
  • access to different networks and areas
  • contributing additional resources
  • access to diverse funding sources

Successful, long-term partnerships are founded on:

  • shared goals which are aligned but not necessarily the same
  • acceptance of a partner’s contribution and level of involvement
  • regular and effective communication
  • celebration of achievements
