Launch of the 2013 Ecosystem Health Report Card for SE Queensland

Wednesday 23 October at 11:15am (for 11:30am start) until 12:30pm.
The SE Queensland's Report Card is the envy of other states. It is an ambitious effort to monitor, record and report the health of the waterways and receiving waters so that everyone knows how things are progressing, good or bad.
The Report Card provides an annual snapshot of the ecosystem health of South East Queensland’s waterways and is released annually by Healthy Waterways. It is the culmination of twelve months of scientific monitoring at 389 freshwater, estuarine and marine sites throughout the region. The Report Card also helps to identify issues affecting our waterways and the actions required to improve waterway health.

The launch is a high profile event held simultaneously at four locations across South East Queensland:
