What is Landcare?
Landcare is a volunteer movement between the community, government and business which helps to protect and repair our environment. While Landcare activities had been carried out for many years by individuals and groups, the Landcare movement officially began in 1989 when the National Farmer’s Federation and the Australian Conservation Foundation lobbied the Australian Government to commit to the cause. The Australian Government, with bipartisan support committed to fund the National Landcare Program.
The movement began with initiatives to improved agricultural productivity through sustainable land management. Today, Landcare adopts a broader focus on sustainable management of all of our natural resource assets. It now encompasses individuals and groups across the whole landscape from the coasts to urban centres to remote areas across the country.

Central Qld Coast Landcare Network
A Partnership for the Natural Resource Management of Catchments in the Central Qld Coast Bioregion: Pioneer, Sarina and Whitsunday Catchments
Whitsunday Catchment Landcare (WCL), Pioneer Catchment & Landcare Group (PCL) and Sarina Landcare Catchment Management Association (SLCMA) operate to progress environmental, economic and social sustainability in the Mackay Whitsunday region. Each is the peak community based natural resource management organisation (NRM) for their catchment, delivering on themes such as biodiversity; climate; coast and marine; land, water and waterways; indigenous resources and community (as identified in the Mackay Whitsunday NRM Plan).
WCL, PCL and SLCMA often pursue funding for joint NRM projects with the view of improving on-ground outcomes. Each group operates independently of the others in day to day business management.
