Local Vet Dr. Felicity Bradshaw retired from the board of GeoCatch after seven years of continuous service, six of those as Chair. “GeoCatch has given me the opportunity to develop everything I am passionate about, from critically endangered Western Ringtail possums, to the way we apply fertiliser throughout the catchment,” said Felicity.
“Everything I have learned I have taken home and applied. The GeoCatch programs have gone from strength to strength and are making a real difference in the Geographe Catchment.”
Department of Water representative Dr. Kath Lynch expressed her gratitude for Felicity’s professionalism and commitment to GeoCatch. “Felicity’s skills and commitment to the role will be genuinely missed, and I would like to thank her for the countless hours that she has put in,” said Kath.
Incoming Chair, Vicky Winton, expressed her excitement to be part of the ongoing projects facilitated by GeoCatch. “Geocatch runs so many important projects – there’s a way for everyone to get involved – from the upcoming possum first aid training to the Bay OK native verge program,” said Vicky.
“In the role of Chair, I am excited to provide opportunities for all to connect and care for their local area and the water that underscores the health of our environment, business and community.”
Vicky is an archaeologist who moved to Busselton with her teacher husband and young son in 2017. She is a keen gardener, composter and consumer of local produce, with an interest in regenerative farming practices.
“GeoCatch sits in the heart of the community. I am excited to work with the talented and hugely experienced board, staff and partners in delivering impactful projects that will continue to improve our environment, community and prospects into the future,” said Vicky.
