This online engagement was hosted on YourSAy from 23 August to 31 October 2019. Below is a record of the engagement.

Help shape how we restore and revitalise the Coorong. Have your say on the Healthy Coorong, Healthy Basin Action Plan. 

What is being decided?

Healthy Coorong, Healthy Basin is a $70 million investment by the Australian and South Australian governments from 2019 to 2024 to manage the Coorong for ecological health and, through this, support the Coorong, Lakes Alexandrina and Albert Wetland Ramsar site to be a healthy, productive and resilient wetland that maintains its international significance. 

The South Australian government has developed a Healthy Coorong, Healthy Basin Action Plan to guide the government’s next actions to restore and revitalise the Coorong under this investment.

You are invited to tell us what you think of our working vision and priorities for restoring the Coorong since the devastation of the Millennium Drought. We are committed to ensuring that government’s decisions and actions, reflect the community’s values and aspirations, and incorporates local knowledge and expertise.

The Action Plan presents a working vision of the short, medium and long-term on-ground works, scientific trials and investigations, management tools and infrastructure activities required to get the Coorong back on track for a healthy future.

Restoring a healthy Coorong is critical for the environment, First Nations, local communities, the South Australian tourism industry, food production and the overall health of the Murray-Darling Basin. That’s why action is underway to restore the Coorong’s health, bringing new life to the region.
