Wetland Wonders

Wetland Wonders

The Wetland Wonders project takes a cooperative approach to the management of key threats to maintain the Coongie Ramsar values both now and into the future, namely, feral animal impacts and priority weed incursions, particularly following flooding events.

The target species surveys for this project include the Kowari (Dasyuroides byrnie) and multiple species of nationally threatened native fish and local and migratory waterbirds.

It also aims to fill knowledge gaps in past and existing monitoring of these values. On-ground management actions will be informed by a Strategic Adaptive Management process and will be implemented in collaboration with relevant land managers.

The monitoring of threatening processes and their impacts on Ramsar biodiversity values will involve Traditional Owners and community volunteers.

This project is supported by the Australian Government's Natural Heritage Trust.
