Landholders in the Cook and Burke shires in far northern Queensland now have access to new regional ecosystem maps. The Queensland Department of Natural Resources (NRM) has released the latest maps showing the state of vegetation in the regions.
NRM spokeswoman Andrea Leverington says the maps are an improvement on previous ones, which only showed remnant vegetation.
“Landholders are able to get further information about these maps from their local NRM office if they want that sort of information,” she said.
“The maps are available so they can buy them up to a 1,000 scale or they can have customised maps organised as well.” she added further.
