The department has managed a number of South West Catchment Council funded wetland mapping projects in the South West of Western Australia.

These projects have substantially increased the area for which wetlands have been mapped, classified and evaluated. This information is essential for effective planning and for the management and monitoring of wetlands in these priority areas. Wetland mapping projects include areas near Margaret River, Leeuwin Naturaliste Ridge, Donnybrook–Nannup and Manjimup–Northcliffe. Once this information is finalised and endorsed it will be made publicly available.
