Wetland projects search tool

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.
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.
