We are The Wetlands Centre!

We have been around for a long time, since 1993, doing wetlands work– conserving, restoring and educating. We’re here with a fresh look, an exciting new logo and a brand-new website!

We’re still that friendly place where everyone comes to recharge and dip their toes into the world of wetlands.

Our fresh new look means we’re working hard, rebuilding our website to deliver everything you need – from a full events calendar to an info-packed blog page and all the resources that’ll help you get involved with us.

About

The Wetlands Centre is dedicated to the conservation and restoration of wetlands, environmental education, training and youth services.

We are an independent, not-for-profit, community organisation. Our Centre runs with a handful of dedicated staff and an amazing team of volunteers.

We are in the suburb of Bibra Lake, 15 km south of Perth, the capital city of Western Australia. Our centre is a gateway to the Beeliar Regional Park, a conservation reserve which was created around two parallel chains of wetlands stretching for 23 km along the Swan Coastal Plain.
