South Cape York Catchments


South Cape York Catchments (SCYC) is a community-based cultural and natural resource management organisation.  Our mission is to help the local community become involved in projects that ensure the cultural and environmental values of the area are protected for future generations. 

In the last 12 months we have undertaken works in weed control, cultural heritage protection, revegetation 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, Government, other NGO's and local school students.

SCYC is proud to coordinate two Indigenous Ranger programs, the Laura Rangers and the Balnggarrawarra Rangers.
