Making more out of the recent wet conditions and strengthening the resilience of the Murray-Darling Basin’s ecosystems is the focus of this year’s Annual Basin Environmental Watering Priorities.

An integral part of the Murray-Darling Basin Plan, these Basin-wide priorities identify where water for the environment should be targeted to best protect and restore the health of rivers and wetlands, and the plants and animals they support.

MDBA’s General Manager of Applied Science, Dr Matt Coleman said with more water in rivers and storages now was the time to capitalise on the fantastic fish and bird breeding events that have occurred and set our plants and animals up for even greater success.
