What we do on the land affects what happens in the ocean.
This is why many people are working together to look after their landscapes, and improve the quality of water flowing to the Great Barrier Reef.
Reducing the amount of nutrients, sediment and pesticides running into local waterways and out to the reef will help to keep it resilient.
Watch the videos below for local perspectives on looking after the land.
The Wet Tropics Major Integrated Project is funded by the Queensland Government through the Queensland Reef Water Quality Program.
