Wetland Conservation – South Tasmania


This project will be undertaken in Miena Park, situated on the shores of Pitt Water Orielton Lagoon, in Sorell. This site was Ramsar-listed in 1982 due to the importance of the site for flora and fauna and the various ecosystems it supports. It is considered a place of significance for conserving biodiversity because of the rare and threatened species and communities located in the wetland. The site is home to a huge population of birds and marine life.

By planting a big number of native species we are improving water quality, increasing biodiversity, providing habitat and reducing erosion. This project is a great opportunity to get your hands dirty alongside some good company. Bring your binoculars if you’re into bird watching.

Useful Information

Volunteers will need to wear boots, long trousers and long sleeves.
