Welcome to the Reef Rescue Water Quality Research and Development Program website.
The Reef Rescue Research and Development Water Quality Program (Reef Rescue R&D) was designed to improve our understanding of the link between land management practices and environmental impacts, and improve water quality across the Great Barrier Reef by supporting a reduction in the amount of nutrients, chemicals and sediments reaching the Reef from agricultural lands.
The Reef and Rainforest Research Centre (RRRC) coordinated Reef Rescue R&D and provided links between projects within the program, and to external initiatives.
In 2014-2015, a number of additional projects were funded through the Reef Programme, under the Australian Government's National Landcare programme. Final reports from these projects are also available on this site.
