Ecological Character Description for Great Sandy Straits Ramsar Site, Queensland
The project required preparation of a comprehensive description of the ecological character of the Great Sandy Straits Ramsar site, south-east Queensland, using a recently-finalised national framework; also updating of the Ramsar Information Sheet and digital boundary map for the site.
The Ramsar Site includes intertidal flats, a sand estuary passage, mangroves, saltmarshes, and freshwater swamps including unusual 'patterned fens' on peat deposits.
