Report Card 2011

The Reef Water Quality Protection Plan (Reef Plan) Report Card 2011 measures progress from the 2009 baseline towards Reef Plan 2009 goals and targets (PDF, 2.39 MB). It assesses the combined results of all Reef Plan actions up to June 2011.

Report Card 2011 was produced as part of the Paddock to Reef program.

Information about how the key indicators were measured can be found in the Methods.

Key findings

  • Progress towards the Reef Plan targets continues to be encouraging, particularly the on-ground management practice changes which are starting to reduce pollutant loads entering the reef. However, it will take more time for these achievements to translate into improved marine condition, particularly given the impacts of extreme weather events in recent years.
  • The on-ground progress has been driven primarily by the Australian Government's Reef Rescue program along with Queensland Government and industry-led initiatives.
