R-CM 18: Restoration of Coastal Systems

Undertake restoration of priority coastal and foreshore areas in the Wet Tropics to protect these important habitats and improve their ability to act as buffers.

Why it is important?

Healthy coastal environments provide enormous environmental, social and cultural benefits, including buffering coastal towns against potential impacts of climate change.  Many ecological communities associated with coastal systems are threatened and under increasing pressure, requiring careful management to prevent further decline.
