The objective of the Program is to support locally relevant stewardship projects which provide accessible opportunities for the community to contribute to caring for the Reef. Successful projects will not only contribute to positive environmental outcomes, they will assist in building pride, confidence, and will strengthen the local community’s capacity and motivation for further stewardship of the Reef.


Within this context, the aims of the Program are to:


  • Foster a culture of community stewardship of the Reef;

  • Stimulate and empower communities to take local action, to enhance health and resilience of the Reef;

  • Develop partnerships and networks within Reef communities, extending to management agencies, Traditional Owner Groups and Indigenous Ranger Programs and partner institutions;

  • Influence social and environmental drivers affecting the Reef, its catchment and communities
