Greetings All,

New shareholder

We welcome Scott Hartshorne to the Company. Scott is an artist who lives on KI. He is very keen on the bush and conservation and will be a great help to Deb Sleeman and others in the management of the KI property. Many of us were fortunate to meet Scott, and sample his scones, at the open day on KI after the last AGM. Scott recently purchased Geoff Rowett’s shares. We thank Geoff for his support of the Company over the last 22 years.

 

Awards

Congratulations to Janet Pedler and Lynn Pedler. Janet received a much deserved Pride of Australia Medal in the Environment category. Janet’s work in conservation and the environment has been ongoing for almost 40 years both privately and in conjunction with many environmental organisations. One particular contribution that stands out to me because I have attended one of the many courses she has conducted, is her association with the Nature Conservation Society of SA and the consequent development of the Bushland Condition Monitoring Method. Lynn received Birds Australia’s J N Hobbs Medal “…in honour of his extraordinary field skills and tireless efforts to locate and manage some of South Australia’s most elusive and threatened birds” We are probably all familiar with Lynn’s work in protecting Glossy Black Cockatoos on KI.
