Since 2016, Project Pioneer has provided education, resources and support for graziers to develop farm management capacity, grow property production, improve land condition and build more profitable and resilient operations.

With funding through the Reef Trust Phase Three Investment Programme, the Australian Government appointed RCS to deliver the 2016-2019 stage of Project Pioneer – Innovation in Grazing Management.

The 2019-2021 stage of Project Pioneer is funded by the partnership between the Australian Government’s Reef Trust and the Great Barrier Reef Foundation.

The project is being delivered with support from WWF, CQUniversity, Maia Technology and Farm Map 4D.
