Report card 2015


Report Card 2015 (PDF, 10.2MB) assesses the reported results of Reef Water Quality Protection Plan actions up to June 2015.

Results show the need to accelerate the rate of change and drive innovation to meet the ambitious targets. However, not all activities undertaken during the reporting period are included so the results are considered a conservative estimate of progress.

  • Half way to pesticide and sediment 2018 modelled pollutant load reduction targets.
  • More efficient fertiliser use needed.
  • Inshore marine condition remained in poor condition but coral improved from D → C.

  • $100s millions towards big targeted projects.
