PRESERVING OUR ISLANDS

The Mackay-Whitsunday region is home to 204 incredible islands. These islands are an important part of the the Great Barrier Reef World Heritage Area (GBRWHA).

Their natural beauty, complex ecosystems and cultural sites contribute to the Outstanding Universal Value of the GBRWHA.

It is imperative we preserve them.

Thanks to funding from the Australian Government’s National Landcare Program, Reef Catchments has been able to complete a range of works to protect and enhance islands within the GBRWHA.
