Each year, Cairns Regional Council produces a State of the Environment Report (SoE) to:
- identify pressures on the natural environment;
- report on responses being undertaken to help address these pressures; and
- monitor and evaluate the effectiveness of these responses.
With this knowledge, Council can allocate our environmental management resources more effectively and strengthen our governance framework to help conserve and restore our natural environment.

State of Environment reporting is constantly being strengthened for increased readability and accuracy. The latest report records the most correct data as new knowledge becomes available. Data discrepancy between reports can be due to a range of factors including de-amalgamation with Douglas Shire, improved data collection, access to new information and changed procedures. Please refer to the latest report for the most up to date data.
