Wah Wah Wildlife - From Tanks to Troughs

With the possible progression of the Wah Wah Stock & Domestic Pipeline scheme, announced by Murrumbidgee Irrigation in late 2011, members of the Western Wah Wah Stock & Domestic Water Users Association and Hay Trees on Plains Landcare became concerned as to what this might mean for local wildlife.

With funding from Murrumbidgee CMA, the groups engaged ecologist Matt Herring to assess the value of existing tanks in the district as habitat for native birds, mammals and reptiles. Matt’s findings are available to download in the report below. These findings were presented to locals at a Murrumbidgee Landcare-funded family information evening in January 2012, along with suggestions for mitigating the impacts of the loss of surface water that will result from the new, water-efficient pipeline scheme.
Funding has recently been obtained to make these suggestions reality – more information on this is available on the Water for Wildlife page.
