Development of information tools on wetland biodiversity and management in Australia
Wetlands International developed a suite of information tools for organisations that are promoting wetland management and significant wetland species in Queensland, Australia. We led on mangroves, saltmarshes, coastal grass-sedge wetlands, arid-zone swamps and inland non-arid swamps.
Wetland Management Profiles
The Queensland Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) compiled detailed brochures on the values and management of wetlands in Queensland. Wetlands International staff were the lead authors of five of these publications and provided text images and review comments on several other profiles.
To view the list of published profiles and downloads please refer to the EPA website.
Factsheets for regional/catchment bodies
During 2005 and 2006, Wetlands International staff have drafted factsheets for two regional natural resource management (NRM) bodies, the Fitzroy Basin Association, and the Condamine Alliance (via the EPA). These products were release in 2006 and cover:
* migratory shorebirds on the Central Queensland coast
* the Cotton Pygmy-goose
* management of 4 inland wetland types of the Condamine catchment.
