History of Whitsunday Catchment Landcare
Whitsunday Catchment Landcare (WCL) was formed in 1998 under the name Whitsunday Rivers Integrated Catchment Management Association (WRICMA). In 2006 the group underwent a name change through the Office of Fair Trading to incorporate Landcare Whitsunday, a group which had operated from 1996. The name WCL incorporates both the Landcare ethic and that of Integrated Catchment Management. In 1999 WRICMA published the WRICMA Strategy to guide natural resource management in the Whitsunday Catchment. The group was one of the founding stakeholders of the Mackay Whitsunday Natural Resource Management Group and assisted in the development and public consultation of the Mackay Whitsunday Natural Resource Management Plan which incorporates the Catchment Management Strategy.
