GENERATION  INNOVATION

I am incredibly excited about Generation Innovation - a new not-for-profit organisation whose purpose is to 'unleash the innovation of young people'. 

Generation Innovation is now running its first youth entrepreneurship program, which is a highly publicised and interactive competition for 15 to 25 year olds to turn their ideas into commercial reality with a mix of training, mentorship and micro-financing from the local business community.
 
The program is about inspiring hope in young people who might just conclude 'if they can do it, so can I'.
 
If you would like more information on Generation Innovation or would like to offer your support, connect with their Facebook page here
 
 

 

 

RAINE ISLAND TURTLE RESCUE

One of my proudest achievements as Minister for National Parks, Recreation, Sport & Racing is the Raine Island Rescue.

Raine Island is the world's largest known rookery for the vulnerable green turtle. It is the breeding ground for 70% of the world's green turtle population and more than 100,000 of the turtles visit each year to lay eggs. But, the coral cay had been smashed by cyclones and previously hurt by phosphate mining, meaning sand was being lost from the island into the ocean.

The rescue involved installing 400 metres of fencing along cliff edges to minimise turtles being upturned during the nesting season, re-profiling 150 metres of beach foredune and swale to reduce water inundation of nests, establishing a number of fenced 'nursery' plots with ideal conditions to determine optimal nesting success and installing cameras and data loggers to improve communication and satellite monitoring.
