Friends of Cape Gantheaume
The members of Friends of Cape Gantheaume Conservation Park have a strong philosophy of working in partnership with Natural Resources Kangaroo Island, and other Friends of Parks Groups. This partnership enables the group to undertake activities that are not able to be achieved by the Department and the group maintains an ongoing maintenance commitment to projects once they have been commenced. This partnership and commitment has seen the group work well with the organization to deliver jointly desirable outcomes.
