Your New Committee
Our AGM was held on 21st January and was attended by 50 members. Following the business part of the meeting we enjoyed a video presentation about a new app called Coastal Walkabout, an open access citizen science initiative which utilises smart phone technology and social media to engage and motivate local communities to gather scientific observations within coastal and estuarine environments. We believe that this app could be used by registered PMRA members to recording local dolphin sightings for Murdoch University, and we welcome your comments and suggestions about this.
Your committee for 2014 is:
Kerrie Andrews, Gary Brown, Crawford Flaherty, Dawn Flaherty, Michael Georgeff, Peter Hick, Rene Jorgensen, Martin Robinson, Brennan Rose and Linda Thorpe. Our thanks go to former presidents Selby Munsie and Faye Grey for all that they have done for the Association.
If you would like a copy of the Annual Report please email info@portmandurah.com.au
At our next committee meeting we shall be reviewing our projects for 2014 and we invite you to contact us with your suggestions.
