World Wetlands Day Event - Queensland Murray-Darling and Bulloo Basins Aquatic Conservation Assessments

Biodiversity Assessment Team – Steven Howell

2 February each year is World Wetlands Day to raise global awareness about the vital role of wetlands for people and our planet.

The identification and mapping of wetland conservation values is a critical foundation for a wide range of wetlands planning, policy and legislative instruments. The Queensland Department of Environment and Science has recently completed and released Aquatic Conservation Assessments (ACA) for eight catchments in the Queensland Murray-Darling and Bulloo Basins (QMDBB) using the Aquatic Biodiversity and Mapping Methodology (AquaBAMM). The methodology and results from these riverine and non-riverine QMDBB ACAs will be presented.
