The Mackay Whitsunday Isaac coastal zone is characterised by a diverse range of natural features including sandy beaches, rocky headlands, extensive intertidal flats, and substantial areas of coastal wetlands. These areas are under increasing threat from development, climate change, population growth and recreational use.
Part of the Coasts and Communities Program deals with working with coastal communities to identify local environmental problems and achieve practical solutions. Coastcare is an Australia-wide community of volunteers who care for their coast.
