Coordinator - Whitsunday Reef Islands Initiative
Mackay or Proserpine, Queensland
Base salary: $70,000 - $95,000 (Dependent on skills, qualifications & experience). Full-time to 31 December 2021.
Whitsunday Reef Islands Initiative
The Reef Islands Initiative is a $14 million, 10-year collaboration between the Great Barrier Reef Foundation, Lendlease, Australian Government’s Reef Trust, Queensland Government and the Fitzgerald Family Foundation, that aims to protect and restore critical island values and habitats in the face of a changing climate. The Whitsunday Project component of the Reef Islands Initiative is led by Reef Catchments.
The RII Whitsunday project aims to position the Whitsundays as a recognised global hub for inshore fringing reef stewardship, with the area a key demonstration site for piloting restoration intervention techniques, by trialling and testing a suite of tools and techniques for ridge to reef restoration (i.e. mangrove to corals).
This core stream of work will be underpinned by an evidence base that will integrate existing research, cultural heritage knowledge, mapping, modelling, social and economic values to develop a baseline map to understand where to deploy interventions and enable adaptive management decisions.
Reef Catchments is a regional community not-for-profit business focused on enhanced use and management of natural resources (land, water, vegetation and ecosystem health) while maintaining a viable regional community.
