CEO’s Message

Welcome to the Reef Catchments Website

Katrina-Dent-Reef-CatchmentsThe Mackay Whitsunday Isaac region has a complex biodiversity value and provides numerous ecosystem services to the people who live and work here. Natural Resource Management is an essential service for sustainable development and Reef Catchments is best positioned to deliver these services in our region.

We take pride in our role as advocates for the Great Barrier Reef, facilitators of best land management practice in agriculture and resource managers, which allows the region to capitalise on our natural assets through activities such as tourism.

I am pleased to lead a team of enthusiastic individuals who bring their expertise and commitment to the opportunities and challenges we face in NRM.  We value our strong working relationship with our stakeholder organisations and funding bodies, built over the past 12 years, which we intend to maintain and develop into the future.

We look forward to partnering with both the Queensland and Australian Governments in the delivery of Natural Resource Management programs and other potential partners for new funding opportunities.

Katrina Dent, Chief Executive Officer, Reef Catchments
