Working on Wetlands in Mackay-Whitsunday

Sep 28, 2014 | , ,

More prominence will be given to the restoration, construction and maintenance of critical wetlands in the Mackay-Whitsunday region, thanks to the good work of the Wetland Working Group.

Formed this year, the group aims to develop and share information on wetland activities that are happening locally, as well as seeking partnerships to add value to these programs.

Wetlands provide protection from the marine environment to the land and shore and reduce the impacts of floods.

Wetland types are diverse and can include rivers, swamps, lakes, lagoons, mudflats, mangroves and even coral reefs.
