6 Becoming a Territory Guardian, by setting up a monthly donation, is a great way to support the work of ECNT. We're a small non-for-profit organisation, and we rely on donors to ensure we can influence elected representatives and bring the community together to ensure positive environmental outcomes. All donations over $2 are taxdeductible. Thanks to Blue Cycles, Coconut Grove, we've been donated a road bike worth $750 to help us fundraise this year! Any Territory Guardian signed up by the end of 2020 will go into the draw to win the bike! Gamba action powering ahead The NT Government has launched its Gamba Army, with 45 people to be hired to control gamba over this management season. The Army will focus on key Parks and tourism assets, key industries and community amenities. Every signal is that if the Gamba Army works well, it will be expanded in future years - which is what we'll need as part of a broader response to finally get Gamba under control across the Top End. Protect Our Patch is getting ready for the gamba control season, looking to support people who need assistance to control Gamba near them. If you need help with Gamba near you, contact Protect Our Patch. A huge shout out to every firefighter who has responded to extreme and catastrophic fires over recent months to protect our communities. Thanks to everyone who had their say on the Gamba 10 Year Action Plan. We'll be in touch when new versions come to light, and with information about how to get involved with the Gamba Army.
