Safeguarding the future of our planet

Healthy Land and Water is an independent organisation dedicated to improving and protecting South East Queensland’s environment.

Our diverse team of scientists and engineers are experts in research, monitoring, analysis, engagement and project management. Working alongside Traditional Owners, government, private industry, utilities and the community, we deliver innovative and science-based solutions to challenges affecting the environment.

Our teams on the ground restore waterways and landscapes, improve native habitats, manage weeds, protect native species and educate communities on the best ways to improve and protect the environment for future generations.

It’s all part of our ongoing mission to make South East Queensland a greener, cleaner and healthier place to live and play.

What Healthy Land and Water do

We help people understand the values and condition of South East Queensland’s environment so we can ensure the sustainable use of our natural environment long into the future. Healthy Land and Water works with community, industry and government to deliver innovative and science-based solutions to challenges affecting our landscapes, waterways and biodiversity.

At Healthy Land and Water, we believe that maintaining healthy landscapes and waterways is not just important for wildlife and ecosystems. A healthy environment also supports a vibrant economy, strong livelihoods, great lifestyles and the happiness and well-being of the community. Through our work, we encourage people to examine and change their behaviours for the benefit of the natural world and for the people and places we love.
