The Department of Conservation and Land Management (CALM), which is responsible for the management of natural areas in public ownership within Western Australian and wildlife management throughout the state, has entered into a partnership with the University of Notre Dame Australia to deliver some of the units within their Environmental Studies and Tourism programmes. CALM involvement with the university started in 1994 with the provision of occasional guest lecturers and involvement in field excursions with the students over a range of units (eg. during visits to national parks and other sites managed by CALM). More recently, however, CALM have taken the responsibility for presenting two units in their entirety: ES/ BS181 Ecotourism and Heritage Management and ES280/380 Recreation Planning and Management. In addition to the partnership between these two institutions, the two units directly involve local government and the community.
This paper presents details of the two units and discusses how this partnership contributes towards community leadership and responsibility and represents effective environmental education.
