Banksia Woodlands: A restoration guide for the Swan Coastal Plain was the recipient of a 2017 Golden Gecko Award for Environmental Excellence last week, which was presented as part of the WA State Government’s Department of Mines, Industry Regulation and Safety Awards for Excellence.
As reported in The West Australian, Department director-general Dean Smith said the awards promote and celebrate the work resource companies do within their industry and wider community.
The Golden Gecko, twenty-five years old this year, recognises innovation and leadership in environmental management. Presented by the Minister for Mines and Petroleum Sean L’Estrange, Banskia Woodlands was awarded the prize for documenting the new standard for rehabilitation and conservation of nationally important woodlands. The book is a collaboration between Kings Park and Botanic Gardens, The University of Western Australia and Hanson Construction Materials.
