Webmaster needed for Australia and New Zealand -- Apply here.
River conservation and river access depend on creating a large number of informed people who care. Your mission, should you decide to accept it, is to keep this website updated, and thereby foster the development of a network of well-informed river users and activists throughout Australia and New Zealand. Thanks to your maintenance of this site, people will know what the current problems are, what the relevant river law is, and how to dialog with politicians and officials, using relevant law, to help conserve rivers in Australia and New Zealand and ensure public access to rivers for responsible recreation.
At least once a week, you check the River Rendezvous postings for Australia and New Zealand on this site. You organize the new postings and incorporate them into the River Registry web pages, eliminating redundant, irrelevant, or outdated material. If you hear news about these rivers from other sources, you incorporate that news into the site as well. The net result will be that the site will provide up-to-date reports on the river issues in Australia and New Zealand, and show people in a clear, concise way how they can help conserve rivers and river access.
We will send you additional directions and suggestions for maintaining the site. Each time you update the site, and e-mail us a notice to that effect, we will assign you an additional point as a member of the U.S. River Conservation Team. (See the U.S. River Conservation Team for an explanation of that system.) If you update this site once a week, you could redeem your points for, (as an example,) a new paddle and a helment every year, or a new kayak every two years. We also expect to be able to send you payment for your work in the near future, as additional people join NORS. If you later want to discontinue the work at any time, just let us know. Your points and earnings will still apply up to that date.
To apply, just notify NORS headquarters with the following form. NORS staff will reply with further information.
This website is made possible by the generosity of the members of the National Organization for Rivers (NORS.)To help this effort thrive, start or extend your membership by going to NORS memberships.
