Why the Moreton Bay Ramsar Wetland?
Covering more than 120,000 hectares, the Moreton Bay Ramsar site is visited by more than 28 species of migratory shorebirds (30,000 individuals visit the site each year), 750 species of fish, eight species of dolphin, six species of marine turtles, five species of whale, and the dugong.
These animals live in the many different coastal habitats found across the Ramsar Wetland including freshwater wetlands, beaches, mud flats, saltmarsh, mangroves, coral reefs and seagrass beds.
The Moreton Bay Ramsar Wetland is internationally recognised for its biodiversity and ecological significance and its rich cultural heritage.
We encourage you to get out there, enjoy this unique environment and share your photos and experiences with us.
