Our partners in action

2021-2022 Management Response Report:
Working for flow-on impact

The ‘Working Together for Healthier Waterways’ report on this page showcases the activities and efforts of our partners during 2021 and 2022 to improve the values of our Dry Tropics catchments and Great Barrier Reef.

Action for healthier waterways has critical flow-on benefits, ultimately affecting not only waters, reefs, lands and biodiversity, but jobs, public spaces, and the health of our people and communities.

Thank you to our partners and extensive Dry Tropics network for the investment, time, and expertise demonstrated in this report.

We actively welcome new partners, collaborations, and ideas in our work in Townsville and surrounding region. Get in touch
