The Cape York Keep It Clean project is an initiative of Thoughtful Travelling Cape York. This project is supported by Cape York NRM and the Queensland Government’s Litter and Illegal Dumping Community and Industry Partnerships Program.
This project continues the Pond Apple control work in the Mt Amos and Cooktown area by Cape York Weeds and Feral Animals Inc, in association with Jabalbina Yalanji Aboriginal Corporation, South Cape York Catchments, Cook Shire Council and the Traditional owners.
This is the first appendice for the Eastern Cape York Water Quality Improvement Plan and presents the key disturbances to water quality in the Great Barrier Reef such as gully erosion.
The second appendice of the Eastern Cape York Water Quality Improvement Plan offers a framework for the prioritisation of management for sub catchments and alluvial gullies in the Normanby Catchment based on rate of errosion and sediment levels.
The fourth appendice of the Eastern Cape York Water Quality Improvement Plan looks at why a new approach to the monitoring of suspended sediment and nutrient levels should be developed and utilised in order to accuratelty model the quality of water entering the Great Barrier Reef lagoon.
This appendix presents the vast majority of technical information for the Eastern Cape York Water Quality Improvement Plan such as the suspended sediment, nutrient, and pollution levels of each region, climatic conditions and so on.
This is the sixth of sixteen appendices for the Eastern Cape York Water Quality Improvement Plan and presents a synthesis of the overall water quality of the Great Barrier Reef lagoon through the analysis of datasets pertaining to nutrient levels, chlorophyll-a and suspended sediment that were recorded during the AIMS Long-Term Monitoring Water
This is the eighth appendice for the Eastern Cape York Water Quality Improvement Plan and offers an emperical load estimates for the nutrient and sediment levels of three major east flowing rivers, the Normanby, Annan, and Pascoe.
Under the Eastern Cape York Water Quality Improvement Plan one of the intended outcomes was to produce a set of guidelines that addresses Aquatic Ecosystem Protection for both the fresh and estuarine surface water bodies of the region. This Appendix (Appendix 9) addresses the need for those guidelines.
This risk assessment was developed to help gain scientifically accurate information regarding the land-based pollutants which pose the biggest threat to coral reefs and sea grass beds in the Great Barrier Reef (GBR).
