12130: Busselton urban wetlands restoration project
Busselton urban wetlands are located to the west of the Busselton town-site along the New River. They are part of the Ramsar listed Vasse-Wonnerup wetland system, situated behind the coastal dunes of Geographe Bay, and help filter urban drainage before it enters the Bay.
This project aims to build the resilience of the wetlands to improve their nutrient stripping capacity by controlling weeds and revegetating along their margins and in stormwater entry points.
The project will also raise awareness of the importance of urban wetlands through events, signage and media promotion.
