Brief description Restoration of rivers and wetlands has become the major focus of conservation efforts in the Murray-Darling basin, in recognition of the services delivered to the community by natural healthy ecosystems. To be effective, such efforts need to be well-grounded in knowledge of the biota and the ecosystems in which they reside. This study will provide such key information for a flagship species and high-level consumer, the rare predatory broad-shelled turtle in the fragile wetlands of the lower Murray. The study will address aspects of the National Research Priority 'An Environmentally Sustainable Australia'
