About this sub logic
By 2023, there is a restoration of, and reduction in threats to, the ecological character of Ramsar sites, through the implementation of priority actions.
Australia currently has 65 Ramsar Wetlands that cover more than 8.3 million hectares. Ramsar wetlands are those that are representative, rare or unique, or are important for conserving biodiversity. These are included on the List of Wetlands of International Importance developed under the Ramsar convention which aims to halt the worldwide loss of wetlands and to conserve, through wise use and management, those that remain.
Wetlands are a critical part of our natural environment. They protect our shores from wave action, reduce the impacts of floods, absorb pollutants and improve water quality. Wetlands provide habitat for animals and plants and can contain a wide diversity of life, supporting plants and animals often found nowhere else.
