Marine Estate Management Strategy


A collaboration between North Coast Local Land Services, 34 landholders and Ballina Shire Council in the Alstonville plateau has seen improvement works carried out that will increase ecological function, help mitigate pollutants entering waterways and increase bank stability during flooding events in the Emigrant creek sub-catchment

The project primarily worked with Macadamia growers and graziers to rehabilitate the riparian areas on their properties. Other benefits include increasing biodiversity, creating healthy wildlife corridors, and rehabilitating the Big Scrub Rainforest.

These works funded by the NSW Govt, form part of the North Coast Local Land Services Marine Estate Management Strategy project to improve the Richmond River Catchment water quality.
