World Wetland Day is an annual event held on the 2ndFeb each year WORLDWIDE to help raise global awareness of the value wetlands provide to humanity and the importance of protecting them. In 2018 there is a focus on Sustainable Urban Future, emphasising the critical role of wetlands in making cities liveable, Sydney included! Wetlands provide benefits such as; flood control, water supply, waste treatment, green space and livelihoods.

In keeping with the Sustainable Urban Future theme, this year we will be working in the Turrella Reserve along Wolli Creek to help increase the biodiversity of the area and restore the important wildlife habitat corridor which will encourage native species to return to the area and thrive. Included in these native species is the under threat Eastern Long-necked Turtle that lives in these waters.

Accompanying your significant conservation activities, you will be taken on an interpretive walk to discover the hidden secrets of the wetlands. Along the way you will encounter a large Grey-headed Flying-fox colony under threat from the urbanisation of Sydney.

See you out there!

This event is assisted by the NSW Environmental Trust
