Win an iPad by providing your thoughts on local waterways


Residents of South East Queensland are being urged to help with a regional survey on how communities use and value their local waterways, and can win an iPad in the process.

The short 10-minute survey is being run by QUT on behalf of natural resource management group Healthy Land and Water, and will inform the annual Report Card on the condition and benefits of South East Queensland’s creeks, rivers, beaches and bays.

“We want to get a real picture of how people feel about their local waterways; whether they are easy to access, clean and safe to use for a range of purposes, all the things that determine how we value and relate to these natural assets,” Principle Scientist at Healthy Land and Water Dr Paul Maxwell said.

“Because of this, we want to hear from people from all walks of life, not just those who are environmentally-minded. By completing the short survey, residents will be helping us to get a more accurate picture of the way South East Queenslanders interact with local waterways.”

The annual Healthy Land and Water Report Card has been measuring the condition of South East Queensland’s waterways for nearly 20 years. Previously it was called the Healthy Waterways Report Card.

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).

Go to the 2016 Report Card for the full list of results.

South East Queensland residents who complete the survey will automatically go into the draw to win an iPad. The competition closes on Sunday 3 August and will be drawn on Monday 4 August 2017.
