DG: Coastal Revegetation Programs

Conduct revegetation in coastal areas around Mossman to help protect and buffer these vulnerable areas, and make them more resilient to the impacts of climate change.

Why it is important?

Coastal areas are important for their biodiversity values, as well as the protection they provide to communities and infrastructure located here. Revegetation of coastal locations and protection of mangrove systems can improve their buffering ability and help improve resilience with changing climatic conditions.

Examples of Local Action

  • Revegetate Douglas foreshore areas.
