The Living Murray Program
The Living Murray is a joint initiative of the Australian Government and the governments of New South Wales, Victoria, South Australia and the Australian Capital Territory. It was initiated in response to compelling evidence of a long-term serious decline in the health of the Murray River system. Its primary goal is to achieve a healthy, working river for the benefit of all Australians. To this end, it focuses on improving the health of six important ‘icon sites’ along the river by increasing the flow of environmental water to benefit the plants, animals and communities that the river supports.
