Paddock to Reef - Normanby Catchment

pdfFact Sheet Release date:


The Paddock to Reef Integrated Monitoring, Modelling and Reporting Program is a collaboration involving Australian and Queensland Governments, industry, regional natural resource management bodies and research organisations.

The region is largely dominated by seasonal rainfall and river discharge. Project officers work with land managers to reduce potentially high influxes of sediment, nutrient and pesticide inputs into Great Barrier Reef catchments.

The Paddock to Reef Program ranges from paddock scale through to sub-catchment, catchment, regional and Great Barrier Reef-wide scales, evaluating management practice adoption and efficiency, catchment condition, pollutant run-off and marine condition.
