The Tackle Bin Project is an initiative to prevent plastics and other litter, particularly recreational fishing rubbish, from entering the marine environment. Reef Catchments has brought this project to Mackay, and there are Tackle Bins throughout Queensland.
Every year, volunteers come together to collect citizen science data about five seagrass sites across our region. Reef Catchments is looking to support a volunteer group in Mackay/Isaac to monitor southern sites.
Reef Catchments is working to restore the degraded corridor behind the Twin Creek Court development in Cannonvale in partnership with Whitsunday Regional Council and Whitsunday Catchment Landcare.
The Janes Creek catchment landholders’ project is a two-year Queensland Government funded water quality improvement project which engages a whole-of-system approach to management practice adoption, system repair, and treatment solutions.
The Traditional Owner Reference Group (TORG) is made up of representatives from Yuwibara, Koinmerburra, Barada Barna, Wiri, Ngaro, and Gia and Juru within the boundaries of the Reef Catchments Mackay Whitsunday Isaac (MWI) region. The group plays a role in supporting Indigenous people and organisations to participate in the delivery of NRM activities.
