Reviving
native
habitat
in QLD

Sitting on ancient land within Queensland’s Great Barrier Reef catchment area, this Catchment Conservation Alliance project is regenerating 2,300 hectares of native forest on land that’s historically been cleared for pasture. These days Eucalypt and Acacia trees are flourishing, providing shade for cattle and a thriving habitat for native wildlife including bearded dragons, blue-tongue lizards, galahs and wallabies. What’s more, by improving water retention on the land and reducing top-soil runoff, this project also directly improves water quality flowing to the Great Barrier Reef.
