This project involved several diverse elements, including actions undertaken for engagement and knowledge; atmosphere; biodiversity; coastal and marine; groundwater, land soil and agriculture; as well as surface water and wetlands.

In relation to on-ground works on wetlands, the following key outcomes were achieved:
  • significant and integrated event water quality monitoring carried out across the region
  • remediation work on barriers to fish passage identified, prioritised and started
  • remediation and/or protection implemented on 210ha across five priority wetland complexes in the lower Burdekin: major threat reduction carried out for a large proportion of wetlands in the region.

The threats are primarily weed related and have been addressed through weed harvesting, spray programs and grazing management.
