Perth’s wetlands and catchments are valuable natural assets because they provide habitat for aquatic and terrestrial flora and fauna, and support biodiversity and threatened species. They drain land, transport and storm water and carry flood waters. Wetlands influence the water quality of rivers and streams by removing pollutants such as sediments, nutrients, organic and inorganic matter and some pathogens.
Wetlands not only include lakes with open water but areas of seasonally, intermittently or permanently waterlogged soil. Approximately 25 per cent of the Swan coastal plain between Moore River and Mandurah is classified as wetland.
Join us for a day of planting in the Canning River Regional Park. The Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions started planting here in 2005 as part of a broader restoration project across five key areas. We will be assisting them with infill planting to improve the condition of vegetation along the Canning River foreshore. Planting native seedlings will also increase connectivity between the five sites providing more habitat for our native wildlife.
