Catchment indicators

Since pre-European times, 18% of riparian forest and 17% of wetlands have been lost. Reef Plan aims to halt this loss. Some areas are less impacted with Cape York still having 100% of wetlands remaining.

The loss of wetlands and riparian forest was caused by a range of factors including modifications to hydrology and clearing of vegetation.
