World Wetlands Day Spectacular!

Show notes

This week, in the first pod for 2022, Gerard catched up with some wonderful private landholders who have spent 40 years rebuilding a functioning wetland on their property and a local government officer who tells us all about a new wetland that has recently been built to protect the Gippsland Lakes.

To round things off, Dr Adrian Clements from the WGCMA chats about wetlands, their role, importance and future as we celebrate World Wetlands Day on Feb 2

Topics discussed:

  1. Jack River wetland restoration
  2. East Bairnsdale wetland construction
  3. The role of wetlands and just why are they so important
