Cave Management Advisory Committee

Establishment

The Caves Management Advisory Committee was formed in 1989 as a result of Action 6.1 of the LNNP Management Plan 1989-1999.
“Establish a Cave Management Committee jointly with CALM, Speleological Groups and other appropriate bodies to oversee cave management.”
The Committee was initially a formal committee with appointments made by the minister. From about 2006 CMAC has been operating as an informal committee.

History
The development of the Cave and Abseil Permit System for the LNNP was one of the most significant achievements of CMAC in the first few years.

Functions

• Provide advice on speleology and karst management issues;
• Provide advice on other issues referred to the committee, including Wilyabrup Cliffs;
• Advise on preparation and implementation of management plans;
• Bring matters of concern to the Department
• Assist in promulgation of information to stakeholders;
• Liaison between the Department and the community.

Conduct of Members:

Stay informed about all relevant activities affecting the committee.
Attend all meetings. Where attendance is not possible submit an apology.
Prepare for meetings by reading and considering papers circulated with the agenda. Ensure that a “stand-in” is fully informed.
Treat each other with courtesy, professionalism, and respect.
Consult stakeholders and affected parties about issues under consideration.
