The communities of the Wet Tropics region have identified a diverse range of priority actions which, collectively, will help achieve our strategic outcomes and keep us moving towards our longer term goals.
The identification of priority actions was done both regionally and locally. These were then integrated to arrive at the greatest possible alignment between what people care about in their backyard and regional priorities; these now form our list of Regional priorities.
The complete list of Local priorities can be accessed using the filters to the left. More detail can be found on each Priority Action by clicking on the links for more information.
Undertake restoration of priority coastal and foreshore areas in the Wet Tropics to protect these important habitats and improve their ability to act as buffers.
Healthy coastal environments provide enormous environmental, social and cultural benefits, including buffering coastal towns against potential impacts of climate change. Many ecological communities associated with coastal systems are threatened and under increasing pressure, requiring careful management to prevent further decline.
