The NQ Dry Tropics Protecting Beach Scrub Project brings community groups, Traditional Owners, landholders, local and state government together to protect beach scrub between Townsville and Bowen.
Beach Scrub is an endangered form of dry rainforest on dunes. The beach scrub endangered ecosystem is rare, biodiverse, and provides a number of valuable services for people as well as nature. The remaining patches are exceedingly vulnerable and under threat.
The Rapid Assessment Method was developed at the end of 2018 and field tested at the start of the Protecting Beach Scrub Communities project during the first quarter of 2019.
