Headwaters, dirty rivers and sea grasses. A look at some of the lesser seen major projects of the WGCMA.

Show notes

This week, Gerard speaks with Major Projects Team Leader at the WGCMA Matt Bowler about some of the bigger but perhaps lesser seen projects that the WGCMA has been involved in over the last few years to make our rivers, lakes and general environment better.

Topics discussed:

  1. The Dirty Rivers project - that looks to work with farmers ot fence off and plant out river banks to reduce erosion.
  2. The Headwaters project - that works in the upper reaches of rivers to remove willows.
  3. The Corner Inlet project - again, working with farmers to improve water flowing into Corner Inlet and Ramsar listed wetlands.
  4. The Spartina project - working to reduce the impact of the introduced weed on the coastal fringes of south west Gippsland.
