Welcome to the Territory Environment podcast where we discuss everything about what it takes to lead and support the conservation, management and sustainable use of the Territory environment. 

We deep dive into managing water, mapping and managing soil and vegetation, regulating industry that operates within the environment, protecting biodiversity and our work to manage weeds and feral animals to allow native species to survive and thrive. 

Maybe it’s the science and work behind bushfires and what fuels Territory fires in your region or what it takes to manage the conservation and visitation across the Territory parks and reserves estates that interests you.

No matter what the topic, if it’s got to do with managing and protecting the Territory’s natural resources and environment, then subscribe today.

The Territory Environment Podcast is brought to you by the Northern Territory Government, Department of Environment, Parks and Water Security.
