Wonderful Wetlands talk
Wetlands are a critically endangered, yet often overlooked ecosystem. Find out why these places are so vital and how we can protect them.
Why are wetlands important? These ecosystems are vital to the health of humans and nature, providing havens of biodiversity and environmental benefits. Around the Werribee River region, we have many different wetlands to visit, some of international significance.
Birgita Hansen from Federation University will be speaking about the Latham’s Snipe Project, initiated to improve our understanding of migration and habitat use by this rare and secretive migratory bird.
Rob Walsh from Australian Waterlife will reveal the hidden world of aquatic microfauna. There are thousands of different types of tiny animals living in our rivers, lakes and wetlands that most people have never seen!
With 90% of wetlands around the world degraded since the 1700s, these places need conservation efforts and understanding, to ensure they thrive into the future. Join us for these presentations about wonderful wetlands and where to find them.
