2017 Healthy Land and Water Awards finalists announced on 21 July!
Healthy Land and Water is dedicated to the care of our unique and beautiful land, waterways and biodiversity.

 

Our Clean Up program collects over 250,000 pieces of litter every year, helping to keep our SEQ waterways clean. 

 

Over 4,000 landowners have now registered for the Land for Wildlife program, helping to preserve our natural assets. 

 

More than 900 hectares of land was treated for weed control under our vegetation management programs in 2016.

 

In 2016, flood resilience solutions were applied to more than 63 kilometres of stream bank, helping to keep our waterways strong. 

 

2016 Report Card Launch

The Report Card results have been released, revealing the current condition and benefits of South East Queensland's waterways.

The Report Card provides an annual assessment of the pressures facing our waterways, their current environmental condition (A-F grade), and the level of social and economic benefit the waterways provide to local communities (1-5 star rating).  View the results now.

What's new?

Working with local and state governments, Healthy Land and Water has assessed each catchment to identify areas that are vulnerable to generating sediment pollution if not appropriately managed. Find out more.
