Project Pioneer is one of RCS’ most significant programs to date. In 2016, the Australian Government’s Reef Trust tasked RCS with educating and supporting graziers in the Great Barrier Reef catchment to adopt regenerative management practices. The outcomes of Project Pioneer focused on improving land conditions and reducing sediment runoff into waterways.

The program empowered graziers to create real change on their properties while achieving the desired outcomes set out by the diverse range of stakeholders from across agriculture and environmental care, which have helped fund the Project.

Outcomes of Project Pioneer

Overall, this project saw:

  • 150 families trained in regenerative management practices
  • 1.3 million hectares of land under regenerative management
  • 7939 hectares of erosion directly treated
  • 408 kilometres of fences erected to protect sensitive areas
