Unhappy In support of Rangeland Australia

As a graduate of the Rangeland Australia postgraduate programme I too am shocked and distressed at the demise of this great iniiative. There is a great need for educational opportunities for those of us who do not live in metropolitan areas in Australia. Generally our landholders have a great deal of knowledge about the rangelands in which we live and particularly of their particular "patch". One aspect of the closure of Rangelands Australia at UQ which will be missed is the opportunity it peovided for these knowledgable landholders to gain a high quality and well recognised post graduate qualificaion which gaves them credability when "discussing" environmental and ecological issues with the more extreme "green" people who tend to discount our knowledge unless it is recognised at tertiary level.
