The purpose of this project was to assist grazing landholders to improve the productivity and sustainability of their grazing management systems, and to integrate the management and rehabilitation of wetlands and riparian zones into their property management planning process (through targeting priority land condition, nutrient, sediment, chemicals and salinity issues), on a whole-of-catchment scale in the Munna, Wide Bay and Widgee sub-catchments of the Mary River catchment. Wetland specific works carried out under this project included: fencing of riparian vegetation, creation of off-stream watering points, erosion control measures, vegetation enhancement of riparian zone.
