What's on

Whitsunday Catchment Landcare (WCL) plans for environmental, economic and social sustainability within the Whitsunday catchment by:

  • involving the community in Natural Resource Management (NRM)
  • emphasising the value of a coordinated catchment-wide approach to NRM
  • encouraging the community to manage, monitor and minimise the effects of daily activities.

WCL provides information and advice to land managers and the community to promote sustainable land use.

WCL also develops projects and seeks funding to carry out on-ground works as well as to provide training and information to land managers.

More information regarding WCL’s work can be found under current and past projects.
