Highlights from World Water Day: Yanco Creek

Irrigation farmers in Yanco Creek are collaborating to improve platypus habitat in their waterways.

This involves over 150 landholders voluntarily contributing through levy payments to improve the health of the creek system. These irrigation farmers highly value wetland ecosystems and the populations of threatened species in the catchment, such as the nationally endangered Trout Cod while at the same time producing high yielding, high quality food and fibre.
