Project Summary

ProjectThe History of North Stradbroke Island's Wetlands: Defining Natural Climate Variability in South-East Queensland and Improving Ecosystem Management

Funding SourceAustralian Research Council Linkage Project
SummarySouth-east Queensland has among the fastest growing populations in Australia. It has also experienced severe drought lasting more than a decade. These combined pressures have led to the expenditure of more than $9 Billion on water resource development. However, it is not known whether the current drought is part of a natural cycle (or, importantly, if it represents the worst extremes in such a cycle). We will determine whether this is the case and, in doing so, contribute to national and international debates about the role of human-induced vs natural climate change.
