Wetlands Conservation

We aim at protecting and preserving our wetlands in the Beeliar Regional Park. Wetlands cover over six per cent of the Earth’s surface and have become a focal issue for conservation due to the ecosystem services they provide. More than three billion people, ie around half the world’s population, obtain their basic water needs from inland freshwater wetlands. In Perth too we depend extensively on our wetlands and the groundwater systems that the wetlands feed for our needs.
