History of the KWRP

KWRP LogoKooragang Wetland Rehabilitation Project (KWRP) has strong partnerships with the community, all three levels of government and neighbouring industry. The project is highly collaborative in nature, attracting a great deal of community interest and involvement to make things happen at Kooragang. The following video is a performance story detailing how the Project began as well as how it has evolved for over a decade now. Completed in 2008, the Australian Government‘s Performance Story Report evaluated the progress that has been achieved by KWRP. As of April 2015, 200,000 plants have been planted on the island. Note: The Catchment Management Authority (CMA) referred to in this video has evolved into what is now known as the Hunter Local Land Services as of January 2014.
