QLD Regional NRM – Our Big Backyard

Protecting waterways through better management - QLD Regional NRM - Our Big Backyard

Australia is a big country. Ever wondered who takes care of the land beyond your back fence? A lot of work is done by regional natural resource management (NRM) groups. There are 14 groups covering all of Queensland, they coordinate efforts to improve and protect our waterways and landscapes - working with farmers, graziers, governments, Landcare, and community groups. It's a big backyard and there's a lot happening. For example, through the work of regional NRM groups in Queensland more than 1 million hectares of land is being managed more sustainably (in the four years to June 2011). This means farmers like Nigel, who grows irrigated cotton, are changing their practices to ensure less run-off of contaminants into nearby waterways, which eventually flow to the ocean.

One million hectares managed sustainably
