About the draft plan

The four-year action plan outlines management strategies to improve the health of the internationally significant floodplain marshes in the Barmah Forest Ramsar Site and the Barmah National Park.

The draft plan sets out conservation actions to increase the extent and cover of the key wetland species, Moira grass, and associated wetland vegetation. The key conservation strategies include:

  • improving current ecological water regimes
  • controlling the grazing and impacts of feral horses, feral pigs, deer and goats, and
  • managing invasive plants.
