Queensland Government, Paddock to reef integrated monitoring program

The Paddock to Reef Integrated Monitoring, Modelling and Reporting Program is a collaboration involving governments, industry, regional natural resource management bodies and research organisations. The Paddock to Reef Program has seen the Queensland government produce regulations to protect the Great Barrier Reef while encouraging farmers to implement best practice. The long term goal of the Paddock to Reef program is to ensure that the water entering the reef has no detrimental effects to health and resilience.
