Protecting Our Climate Safeguards – CQ Wetlands

Join us in Mackay and St Lawrence to enhance the vital ecosystems that connect the land and sea. Our wetland ecosystems are crucial in storing carbon and protecting us from severe weather events such as flooding and tidal surges. Help us protect the ecosystems that battle extreme climate conditions in our region.  

You can learn about the flora and fauna in the region, land, and sea connectivity, and how wetland ecosystems safeguard us against climate events. Together we can make a difference and enhance climate resilience by protecting our wetlands.    

  • Collecting seed and growing native tube stock   
  • Planting trees and spreading seeds to improve biodiversity  
  • Conducting flora and fauna surveys to evaluate the health of the ecosystems   
  • Removing invasive pest species   
  • Educational activities, and much more!

With the opportunity to select from a variety of activities this project is suitable for anyone interested in conservation, our oceans, and wetland health.   

If you want to protect vital ecosystems like our coral reef and wetland areas and meet like-minded people join us today!
