Rangers  monitored waterbird breeding colonies in Gulf Plains to determine the status and ecological requirements of this globally important natural asset. The work targeted waterbird breeding colonies that are regionally and globally important and developed an understanding of the ecological requirements of waterbirds in the Gulf Plains.

It is understood that there are connections between waterbird breeding colonies in the Gulf Plans and other regions in Australia or overseas that reveals an interdependence of wetland sites and habitats. This addresses Australia’s commitment to the Ramsar Convention on Wetlands and achieving the best use of wetlands, and constitutes participation in the East Asian–Australasian Flyway partnership.
