This event will showcase the Great Sandy Strait (GSS) Ramsar Site. The Great Sandy Strait is an internationally recognised wetland, providing habitat and resources for our wildlife and us. The GSS provides a connection between the land and sea; the mangroves, corals, seagrass are all integral components of this very special place. Providing habitat for dugongs, turtles, fish, crabs and shorebirds to name a few special animals.
This special place is in our backyard, so lets celebrate it’s uniqueness and it’s natural wonder.
There are many people and groups who work tirelessly to maintain the natural integrity of the GSS. World Wetlands Day provides the opportunity for these groups to come together and celebrate their efforts and share their experience and knowledge of the GSS with the wider community.
