Knuckey Lagoon Reserve is an important habitat and resting site for hundreds of bird species and local wildlife, just 15 minutes out of Darwin City. The birdlife consists mainly of waterbirds and wader species attracted to the wetland during the extended dry season, and has been hailed by several national publications as one of the top 100 bird watching sites in Australia with sixty-seven species of birds having been recorded in the Reserve.
Conservation Volunteers recognise the importance of this wetland as a rich food source, and an important land pocket to preserve. The wetland backs on to native woodlands, with rare and beautiful plants including Banksias, Grevillea, Pandanus, Stringybarks, Woolybutts and Cycads.
We will be undertaking conservation activities including bird monitoring and surveys, invasive species management to help fire risk management in the area, and basic fencing to ensure its long term preservation.
