New interpretive signage at The Spit Wildlife Reserve

23 October 2017

As part of the Ramsar Protection Program, we recently teamed up Parks Victoria, Melbourne Water and the Department of Land, Water and Planning to install new interpretive signage at The Spit Wildlife Reserve near Point Wilson.

The new signs help raise awareness of the environmental and cultural values found along Port Phillip Bay’s western shoreline, a wetland of international importance.

The coastal saltmarsh vegetation that is found along the shoreline is listed as a nationally threatened ecological community.

Melbourne Water and Parks Victoria are working together to help protect the sensitive vegetation which provides important habitat for a range of native animals, including fish and migratory shorebirds.
