It's our tradition to make a donation to a charity each year, and this year we chose:
Share the Dignity - It's in the Bag Each November, Share the Dignity collects handbags filled with personal care products which are distributed as Christmas gifts through partner shelters and other charitable organisations. Partner charities give them to homeless, at-risk and women experiencing domestic violence.
The Australian Wildlife Conservancy was established more than 10 years ago because Australia has the worst mammal extinction rate in the world, and a very high proportion of our surviving animals and plants (over 1,700 species) are listed as threatened with extinction. Their strategy is simple: Establish sanctuaries by acquiring land and through partnerships with landholders and Implement practical land management – feral animal control and fire management – informed by good science.
We're looking forward to another traffic-packed year in 2018, so don't hesitate to get in touch if you're after some traffic and transport related input on your next project.
From all of us at Cambray Consulting, we hope you had a safe and enjoyable holiday season, and we look forward to working with you again this year!
