1.Introduction to Wetlands Australia February 2015

Wetlands offer substantial economic, social and environmental values that can be harnessed and managed sustainably for the benefit of future generations. Raising awareness and understanding of the benefits of wetlands today will help to protect these important ecosystems and their values into the future.

This edition of Wetlands Australia supports the 2015 World Wetlands Day theme of ‘Wetlands for Our Future’, by highlighting innovative wetland conservation and rehabilitation practices, including examples of the wise use of wetlands for our future. It includes stories from government, community and school groups of partnerships that improve wetland health and enhance our understanding and appreciation of the value of wetlands.
