Reef Guardian Council Action Plan


The Reef Guardian Council program is a collaborative stewardship arrangement between local governments in the Great Barrier Reef catchment and the Reef  Authority. Together, participating councils recognise that local and regional approaches are central to protecting and managing the Reef and the communities it supports.

The program includes 19 participating councils between Bundaberg and Cooktown, covering an area of 300 000 square kilometres and a population of more than one million people. Each council progresses a Reef Guardian Action Plan that outlines a variety of initiatives they are taking to contribute to Reef health and align with the Queensland and Australian Government objectives to improve the long-term outlook for the Reef.
