The purpose of the strategy is to provide a framework to guide sustainable land use and wise management of the biodiversity and environmental values of the Busselton wetlands area.
In granting approval to the Port Geographe project in 1990 the then Minister for the Environment required the preparation of a conservation strategy. Subsequently, it was agreed that the WAPC would prepare the conservation strategy in conjunction with the Department of Conservation and Land Management, together with other key agencies, the Shire of Busselton, community groups and land owners. The Busselton Wetlands Steering Committee has overseen the preparation of the strategy, assisted by a technical working group.
The Government of Western Australia acknowledges the traditional custodians throughout Western Australia and their continuing connection to the land, waters and community. We pay our respects to all members of the Aboriginal communities and their cultures; and to Elders both past and present.
