Promoting conservation and management of arid-zone floodplain wetlands of the Channel Country bioregion

The project aims to raise awareness of the globally important wetlands and waterbird populations supported by unregulated rivers of the arid Channel Country bioregion, inland eastern Australia. It will produce a publication that informs landholders (mostly graziers), the wider community and government agencies on wetland management issues and that advocates appropriate allocations (no reduction in river floods) in current water resource planning.
