the reef trust
The Australian Government has committed $210 million to the Reef Trust to provide innovative, targeted investment focused on improving water quality, restoring coastal ecosystem health and enhancing species protection in the Great Barrier Reef region.
The Reef Trust is one of the key mechanisms assisting in the delivery of the Reef 2050 Plan, focusing on known critical areas for investment—improving water quality and coastal habitat along the Great Barrier Reef, controlling the current outbreak of crown-of-thorns starfish and protecting threatened and migratory species, particularly dugong and turtles. The Reef Trust has a strong focus on evaluation and adaptive management, to ensure it effectively contributes to the long-term sustainable management of the Great Barrier Reef.
Reef Trust is delivered through a phased approach, Reef Trust I in the Central Queensland region focses on the Promotion of A-class grazing management practice, Reef Trust II focuses on gully erosion control and Reef Trust III focuses erosion control and maintaining water quality improvement momentum.
