Reef Guardians is a stewardship program that encourages and supports councils, schools and industries to become actively involved in protecting the Great Barrier Reef.
The Reef Guardian Council program recognises the good environmental work councils are achieving throughout the 42 million hectare Reef catchment.
Whether Reef Guardian Councils and their communities are large or small, they are making continuous improvements to help the Reef.
The Douglas Shire Council Reef Guardian Action Plan 2015/16 records the diversity of Council actions and projects that contribute to Reef health. It aligns with Queensland and Australian Government objectives to improve the long-term outlook for the Reef.
The Action Plan is a powerful tool for the Council to share its Reef management actions with the local community – and the rest of the world.
