We’d love you to join us for a short film about the Coorong and the scientists and citizens helping to return it to a healthy system for all to enjoy. The Coorong is a unique environment that forms part of the Coorong and Lakes Alexandrina and Albert Wetland, a Ramsar wetland of international importance. Work to restore a healthy Coorong needs to be based on the latest science, as well as the experience and knowledge of Traditional Owners and the local community.
