Protecting, Promoting and Restoring Wetlands Since 1991

WetlandCare Australia has been dedicated to protecting and restoring Australian wetlands and inspiring others to get involved for over 20 years. Our founders envisioned a future for restoring networks of wetlands across Australia that would provide the connectivity to ensure healthy functioning ecosystems that support life. As Australia's only dedicated national wetland conservation organisation our reach has been extensive in moving that dream towards a reality.

We have earned our reputation as an influential change agent and partnership builder through our solid track record in managing and delivering hundreds of projects that have resulted in improved wetland ecosystems and their sustainable use.

Our work is far from done and we are committed to continuing the path our founders laid for delivering on their vision. Our 2011-2015 Conservation Plan (PDF - 1.7MB) outlines the next phase of that journey. By working together in partnership we will implement the plan and achieve further tangible results towards the lasting conservation of Australia's wetland heritage.

Our mission: Working with communities to protect, promote and restore wetlands since 1991.

WetlandCare Australia is a not-for-profit, registered charitable institution, with a volunteer Board of Directors, listed on the Register of Environmental Organisations, and all donations are tax-deductible.
