South Cape York Catchments


South Cape York Catchments (SCYC) is a community based Natural Resource Management organisation. In the last 12 months we have undertaken works including aquatic weed control, cultural heritage protection, re vegetation of riparian areas, feral pig exclusion fencing from high value wetlands, water quality monitoring and threatened species surveys.

This work is undertaken in partnership with Traditional Owners, Volunteers, Indigenous Rangers and School Students.

Cooktown and District Country Show 

South Cape York Catchments had a great day at the Cooktown and District Country Show screen printing, painting and chatting to locals and tourists about our work and what is important to them about Cape York.  SCYC was joined by Cape York NRM, and it was really interesting to hear the different opinions of locals and travellers.  It was very clear that a healthy environment and clean waterways was of particular importance to locals and travellers alike- which makes our work all the more important!  

A great day was had by all, and it was a great opportunity for SCYC to get out and about in the wider community to hear what people have to say.
