Summary

Thuringowa City Shire contains a diverse and valuable array of wetlands. The aim of this project was to equip Thuringowa shire’s environmental managers with information on wetland status and management. A main aspect of this project was to report on the status and protection needs of Thuringowa’s wetlands. The report identified threats and various ways to address these threats. In addition, under this project rehabilitation works were undertaken at Mutarnee Swamp. The wetland management plan for this site included clearing lantana and guinea grass, using a contractor, and then re-vegetating with local native vegetation. It was anticipated that landholders would be provided with traps to control feral pigs over the site.
