The Healthy Estuaries WA fertiliser management program was a Premier’s Science Award finalist in the Science Engagement Initiative of the Year category.
Estuary water quality, fish health, and caring for Bindjareb Boodja will be among the topics discussed at an upcoming estuary forum event hosted by the Peel-Harvey Catchment Council as part of the State Government’s Healthy Estuaries WA program.
Healthy Estuaries WA’s Fertiliser Management Program is a finalist in the Premier’s Science Awards Science Engagement Initiative of the Year category.
In April 2013, a mass fish kill in the Vasse Wonnerup wetlands was a pivotal moment in how the wetlands are managed. Reflecting on the past 10 years, scientists and managers came together for a community update hosted by GeoCatch in Busselton.
This report summarises three years of Peel Harvey estuary water quality monitoring (2016–19) and compares the results with historical data. We report on the main drivers of estuary health – climate, flow, and catchment nutrients; and the estuary response – water quality indicators such as salinity, oxygen, nutrients, and microalgal activity.
