As part of a larger project evaluating maintenance requirements of man-made wetands within the City of Onkaparinga, Edge were engaged to undertake an ecological value assessment of 38 selected wetlands. The assessments aimed to better understand the ecological value of the wetlands and provide recommendations for improving ecological value at these sites. Edge applied our Ecological Value tool, developed to help local land-managers establish ecological value baselines of habitats, identify management options that will improve ecological value, and monitor the success of actions over time. Rapid flora and fauna surveys were conducted at each site and a report generated which described the ecological value at each site as a set of management actions and recommendations.
