Southeast Queensland Aquatic Conservation Assessment

Aquatic Conservation Assessments (ACAs) are non-social and non-economic and designed with the sole intent of identifying conservation values of wetlands at a user-defined scale.

In the Southeast Queensland Aquatic Conservation Assessment the AquaBAMM methodology has been applied separately to the non-riverine (i.e. palustrine and lacustrine) and riverine wetlands within each of the 16 catchments. There are 32 ACAs for the riverine and non-riverine wetlands in the study area.

View report: Aquatic Conservation Assessment using AQUABAMM for the riverine and non-riverine wetlands of Southeast Queensland.

The riverine and non-riverine assessments may be accessed through WetlandMaps.

Find out more about accessing the data and reports on the get mapping help page.

Environmental reports online provide information on specific environmental values, by location.

Wetlands education modules

A series of on-line education modules have been prepared as a resource for people who want to learn more about wetlands. Users can download and use the contents of these education modules to meet their learning and training needs. This information should be used in conjunction with information found on this website.

Two general education modules are being released:

Our WetlandInfo feature frog is Cyclorana verrucosa, commonly known as the rough collared frog. This species is native to areas of Queensland and New South Wales, and is dependent on wetlands for the early aquatic stage of their life cycle.

WetlandInfo updates this section regularly, so keep your eyes and ears open!

For more information on frogs, visit Amphibiaweb or the Frogs of Australia website, or view species profiles in your area using the SummaryInfo search tool
