Kangaroo Island Natural Resources Management Board

Our role

The Kangaroo Island Natural Resources Management (KI NRM) Board works with all sectors of the community and all levels of government to provide strategic leadership for the management of natural resources on KI. A role statement provides a common focus for each of South Australia's eight NRM boards.

The members of the KI NRM Board are locals – islanders with different backgrounds and perspectives who are appointed by the Minister for Sustainability, Environment and Conservation to represent the local community. They are deeply connected to and widely involved in the KI community in which they live and work.

The KI NRM Board is responsible for the development and delivery of the Natural Resources Management Plan for the region. This plan is developed in partnership with the community and stakeholders and aims to ensure that there is a balance between the needs of the community and the environment. The plan sets targets for the environment in the region, and is delivered by NRKI through a diverse range of programs and projects across the region.

Our vision

Our vision for the region is that ‘the natural resources of Kangaroo Island are managed sustainably by a capable and engaged community for environmental, economic and social benefit’.
