The Conservation and Communities Team at Reef Catchments works on a wide variety of ever-changing projects. Some of our focus areas include:
Islands are important areas for biodiversity. Comprising just 5% of the Earth’s landmass, they contain 41% of all endangered terrestrial vertebrates and 19% of avian biodiversity. The Conservation and Communities Team is working to protect islands by eradicating pests and weeds and removing marine debris.
Threatened species and communities
The Mackay Whitsunday Isaac region hosts a range of threatened species and threatened ecological communities, such as the northern quoll and broadleaf tea-tree woodlands. The Conservation and Communities Team leads a range of projects to protect these species and communities. Works in recent years have included bio-condition assessments of threatened ecological communities, fencing, revegetation, weed control and pest control.

The Greater Brisbane Urban Fish Barrier Prioritisation Process was created as part of a larger federally funded fish migration project: Re-connecting aquatic habitats across the greater Brisbane Urban Area.
The Sandringham Wetland Complex Project is a sub-component of the overarching ‘High priority coastal and island restoration for the protection of significant ecological communities and species project’ informally known as the Coastal Priorities Project.
