Wetlands are beautiful natural areas which are covered with water for some period of time. They are vitally important habitats for the health of our environment and support a wide variety of native plant and animal species.
CEN's Wetland Education Project seeks to raise public awareness of wetland habitats and increase community participation in wetland protection. The project focuses on wetlands on the Central Coast and in Lake Macquarie, and involves a targeted education program for three priority wetland sites.
This wetland website has been developed as part of the Wetland Education Project and can be accessed to find information on a particular wetland such as its size, ecological value, whether it contains endangered plants or animals, what threatens the wetland, its location, and how individuals can become involved in wetland care.
