Unice Robinson:  Waterbirds – how they use fringing vegetation

Unice Robinson is the co-ordinator for the Friends of Mary Carroll Wetland. This wetland of special note in Gosnells (Bush Forever site no. 124) is an important feeding area and refuge for waterbirds and as a social connection for local people to use.

Unice will talk about the importance of fringing vegetation for our waterbirds as necessary in an urban-built environment, especially at Mary Carroll Wetland. Waterbird interaction and use is as important as the need for water. 

There are some 13 streets which surround the wetland and the Friends group aim is to work with the City of Gosnells to rehabilitate and conserve the remnant bushland.

Unice will also discuss the difficulties and wins in rehabilitation activities to improve diversity for all in our natural environment.
