back to Environmental data

A comprehensive mapping exercise has been undertaken for wetlands of high ecological significance (HES) and general ecological significance (GES) across Queensland in order to identify areas where policies will apply under the State Planning Policy: Protecting Wetlands of High Ecological Significance in Great Barrier Reef Catchments. Identification of HES wetlands within the Great Barrier Reef catchments has been determined using the department's rigorous Aquatic Biodiversity Assessment and Mapping Methodology (AquaBAMM). HES wetlands within the Great Barrier Reef catchments will provide the basis for the department's new concurrence role.
