Barkly Beef 9 March 2005 Introducing New Weed Officers for the Barkly Daniel Connor was born in Newcastle on the central coast of NSW before moving back to the family property just outside Grafton, NSW. After completing high school in Grafton, Daniel then moved to the University of New England in Armidale to further his studies. After four years at Armidale, Daniel managed to graduate with a Bachelor of Natural Resource Management. Throughout his schooling years Daniel enjoyed a range of activities and sports which were squeezed in between duties on the family farm. His main interests lie with cricket, golf, squash, swimming and camping. Since finishing University, Daniel has been very busy working as a project officer for Clarence Valley Council, NSW and spending time with his fiance Toni. Daniel is looking forward to the challenges and rewards of his position with DIPE, living in the territory, meeting new people and visiting new places within the region. Daniel has joined the weeds management branch in the position of District Weeds Officer and can be contacted on: Tel: (08) 89624495 Fax: (08) 89624388 Mobile: 0428 106038 I was born in Adelaide and have lived in Alice Springs all my life. After leaving school I became a trainee ranger with the Conservation Commission for 2 yrs. I then joined the Commission as a T1 ranger in 1988. For the past 16 and a half years Ive worked with the majority of parks in the southern region for Parks and Wildlife. This included the day to day running of parks but also fire management strategies and weed management. During this time I was stationed in Tennant Creek including the Barkly area. I was able to deal first hand with the problems that face both station and traditional owners in the region. For the last two years Ive worked as a Wildlife Officer, mainly dealing with feral animal control. I look forward to a continuing close working relationships with station owners and members of the wider community to promote a healthy sustainable environment that benefits all.
