On Friday the 23rd of July, Wetland Care celebrated its 19 year old birthday. This great organisation is dedicated to protecting and restoring Australian wetlands and inspiring others to get involved.
Wetland Care focuses on building capacity and providing ongoing support to over 16,000 volunteers, community groups, landholders and natural resource managers working to protect and rehabilitate wetlands across the country. Together, these people have conserved, restored and sustainably managed over 175,000ha of Australia’s functioning wetland ecosystems and their catchments, and assisted wetland managers in rehabilitation planning through mapping and assessing over 1,480,000ha of wetlands across New South Wales and Queensland.
Well done to all the staff, Board and volunteers … and Happy Birthday Wetland Care!
