Waterway Linkages

The Waterway and Wetland Linkages project aims to enhance and protect urban waterways in coastal environments by undertaking activities which reduce the impacts of nutrient run-off in waterways and wetlands, restore riparian vegetation and restabilise river banks.

The project also aims to improve conservation of the EPBC listed freshwater fish species, Balston’s Pygmy Perch (Nannatherina balstoni)by partnering with Murdoch University to survey South West waterways for barriers to fish migration and spawning, undertake feral fish control and update the species distribution and identify any range and/or population declines of Balston’s Pygmy Perch.
