Who we are
Healthy Land and Water is an independent organisation dedicated to improving and protecting South East Queensland’s environment.
As experts in research, monitoring, evaluation and project management, we deliver innovative and science-based solutions to challenges affecting our landscapes, waterways and biodiversity.
Healthy Land and Water came to life after two of the region’s most experienced natural resource management groups – Healthy Waterways and SEQ Catchments – merged to form one entity in June 2016. We are now best-placed to act as an enabler and facilitator of change, to provide solutions and connect others, and to drive and influence decisions, policy and actions.
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.
Fundamentally, 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.
