Reef Catchments is a not-for-profit company which delivers natural resource management in partnership with the community to preserve the Mackay Whitsunday Isaac region for future generations.
We believe a healthy environment is the basis for a healthy region, a place where ecosystems are in good condition, the community is cohesive, and the economy provides jobs and a reasonable standard of living. A healthy environment is made up of well-managed natural resources.
As such, Reef Catchments leads programs which focus on enhancing the condition of natural resources including water, land, plants, animals, and micro-organisms linked to our forests, woodlands, grasslands, rivers, lakes, wetlands, coasts, estuaries, and marine ecosystems.
Our programs provide a systematic process for better management of the biophysical, social, political and economic aspects of natural resources as needed for human development and growth. Our programs complement local, regional, State and Federal community and government goals and objectives.
Our role is to facilitate on-ground change and work for long-term solutions to protect the natural resources of Mackay Whitsunday Isaac. Our role is also to record and report to all stakeholders on natural resource condition and its improvement.
We strive for close involvement with the community, local council, and State and Federal government agencies as well as with the private sector. We seek to improve community knowledge of natural resource issues along with improving community capacity to deal with these issues, backed by a strong commitment to innovation and efficient service delivery.
