Wetlands in Western Australia include tidal mangroves, billabongs, salt lakes and fresh water springs. These important ecosystems support a large proportion of the State’s flora and fauna.
DBCA manages and protects Ramsar wetlands (wetlands of international importance under the Ramsar Convention) as well as wetlands on department-managed land.
We also undertake and support research to inform management of the Swan Canning Riverpark. This includes research on waterway condition, monitoring and management.
