Peter Clements

Board Member, Kangaroo Island Natural Resources Management Board

Peter Clements brings extensive knowledge of local government processes and asset management and community engagement skills to the KI NRM Board.

"I am a strong advocate for the island’s clean, green image and as the previous Mayor of Kangaroo Island Council understand the challenges of balancing our island's economy, lifestyle and environmental needs.

"The community need to trust their leaders, industry and agencies.  Listening, observing and feeling the pulse of the community is of great importance to me.  As a KI NRM Board member I aim to engage with and share the communities views for natural resource management within the Kangaroo Island landscape.

Board Member, Kangaroo Island Natural Resources Management Board

"We live in a beautiful place, on KI.  Managing our natural resources as best we can, with integrity to the benefit of the wider community and for the survival of future generations, means dealing with wickedly complex issues and balancing conflicting interests.

"I have worked in community conservation, providing management support to natural resource scientists, and in business, law and governance.

"Common features have been collaboration - listening, understanding, forming and pursuing mutual goals - and pragmatism; I hope to bring both to my activities with the board."

Annette Florance

Board Member, Kangaroo Island Natural Resources Management Board

“I have been a landholder on Kangaroo Island for more than 22 years. During that time I have been heavily involved in a number of different community groups, biosecurity sub-committees and Community Landcare groups.

“Through these activities, my work with NRKI and gaining an Agricultural Science Degree at the University of Adelaide I have gained a very broad knowledge of primary production and pastoral land management practices which I will utilize during my work on the NRM Board.

“We live on a beautiful Island that caters for the agricultural, ecological and tourism sectors alike. I want to ensure we sustain that careful balance.”




 Jenny Stanton

 Board Member, Kangaroo Island Natural Resources Management Board

"I am a farmers wife and have been an agronomist on Kangaroo Island for 10 years, working alongside farmers to grow crops and pastures. 

"My background in agronomy and decision making for cropping and pasture production has supported farmers to maximise profits by increasing production in conjunction with improving their natural resource base.

"My experience has allowed me to support farmers in best practice soil conservation, weed management and I have actively advocated for no-till and zero till seeding methods.

"I have formed strong relationships with the Kangaroo Island farming community through my membership on both the Agriculture Kangaroo Island (Ag KI) committee and the KI NRM Board Biosecurity Advisory Committee.
