Reef Rescue - Dairy Farmers - Great Barrier Reef
Reef Rescue is a key component of Caring for our Country, the Australian Government's initiative to restore the health of Australia's environment and improve land management practices.
Caring for our Country has invested $200 million for Reef Rescue. Since 2008 more than 1600 land managers have received Reef Rescue funds to deliver water quality improvements.
Reef Rescue's objective is to improve the water quality of the Great Barrier Reef lagoon by increasing the adoption of land management practices that reduce the run-off of nutrients, pesticides and sediments from agricultural land.
It will give this World Heritage icon the best chance of responding to the pressures of climate change and global warming.
