Abstract

The saltmarsh wetlands of the Cradle Coast region have been mapped in the recently launched Saltmarsh Atlas.

The University of Tasmania, together with Cradle Coast NRM, mapped the threatened wetlands across the NorthWest using aerial imagery and on ground observations.

The Atlas maps areas of saltmarsh that had never been mapped before, including the Rubicon, Mersey, Forth and Leven Rivers.
