In 2014 I was contracted as a filmmaker and consultant by the ACT Environment, Planning and Sustainable Development Directorate and the ACT National Parks and Conservation Service to write a report and make a film about a Natural Resource Management Project in the Canberra region. The Caring for the Cotter Project was part of the wider Federal Caring for Country Program, and involved the training of six Aboriginal trainees over two years in a wide range of NRM activities, including the restoration of the Cotter River Catchment after the Canberra bushfires of 2003.
