As part of the Great Barrier Reef Coastal Wetlands Protection Plan (GBRCWPP) the Fitzroy Basin Association (FBA) and the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority agreed to co-invest in a project to improve wetlands on the southern Fitzroy floodplain. The floodplain is primarily used for grazing with the wetlands having been impacted by grazing management practices.
Works proposed to improve the wetlands reflect the ecological impacts and key management challenges of this landscape. These primarily include strategic fencing, grazing, managing fire risk and woody weed control. It was also considered that a fish fauna survey was required to provide information of the use of wetlands by fish and how this may relate to future management strategies.
