Abstract

"This booklet has been produced to recognise the incredible achievements of the Animal Management Workers, and celebrate the individuals who made this program a success. We also wanted a platform from which we could highlight the vital work that the AMWs have been performing, with the aim of ensuring that the Animal Management Worker program progresses beyond this point, to a permanent and recognised program throughout all of the Northern Territory." - Page 3
