What is the Environmental Investment Fund?
The Environmental Investment Fund provides funding for activities that help deliver cleaner coastlines, healthier waterways, reduced erosion, more productive agricultural land, preservation of forests and conservation of threatened species.
Planning for future growth in South East Queensland while protecting the environment cannot be left entirely to government - it requires the commitment of the entire community.
Our research highlighted that clean beaches, good air and water quality, national parks and scenic landscapes are what matters most to our community.
In fact, 90 percent of the people we surveyed said that protecting the environment is equal to or more important than economic growth.
Clearly the community wants to avoid further declines in the natural environment from current levels.
That's why SEQ Catchments has established the Environmental Investment Fund to allow businesses and individuals to directly invest in a sustainable future for our community.
What Does The Environmental Investment Fund Do?
The kind of projects that the Environmental Investment Fund will fund include:
- Restoring habitat corridors and replanting food trees to help restore South East Queensland's declining koala population and other endangered species.
- Preserving the threatened Richmond Birdwing Butterfly, one of Australia's largest and most spectacular native butterflies.
- Helping farmers to develop more sustainable land use and farming production practices.
- Seagrass and mangrove transplant programs/rehabilitation in Moreton Bar.
- Marine turtle research into immune system deficiencies killing this Moreton Bay icon.
- Addressing stream bank erosion, restoring wetlands, and revegetating riverbanks, creeks and wetlands and reducing sediment runoff entering Moreton Bay.
