Ramsar Management Plans & Strategies

Ramsar site management plans sit within a framework for the management of aquatic ecosystems within Australia and the State of Victoria. At the national level, the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999 (EPBC Act) establishes the basis for managing Ramsar sites. In Victoria the Victorian Waterway Management Strategy guides the management of rivers, estuaries and wetlands. There are 11 Ramsar sites in Victoria.
