Lowland Tropical Rainforest of the Wet Tropics Officially Declared as Endangered
Terrain and the Wet Tropics Management Authority are calling on Wet Tropics teens to draw inspiration from the likes of David Attenborough, Greta, Dr Karl and local environmentalist Brian “Rossy” Ross and put Wet Tropics environmental issues in the spotlight.
Released today, the 2020 Wet Tropics Report Card assesses the health of nine river basins from the Daintree to the Herbert. It is produced annually by Wet Tropics Waterways as an initiative of the Reef 2050 Plan, an Australian and Queensland Government framework for protecting and managing water quality flowing to the Great Barrier Reef lagoon.
The report card analyses scientific monitoring data from many organisations and is reviewed by an independent scientific panel made up of individuals with a range of expertise.
