NQ Dry Tropics Landholders Driving Change

I want to see this project become a model for future investment in the reef, I want to see the whole community actually participating, engaged and interested in this project not just over the next three years but on into the future.”

This program will encourage non-graziers who manage or use land in the BBB to get involved with the project so it can truly be a whole-of-catchment effort. Although 92 per cent of the land in the BBB is used for grazing, other areas include national parks, state forests and coal mines. Four local councils operate in the catchment, which also features major infrastructure such as power transmission lines, local and main roads, and rail lines. A key aim will be to develop a successful model for effectively engaging with non-agricultural land managers that could be used in other catchments.
