Wetland Habitats aims to control and, if possible, eliminate exotic fish, foxes, rabbits, cats and pigeons.
A local Green Corp team has been active in removing willows from the river edge, and the removal of boxthorn is a priority.
The South Australian Murray-Darling Basin Natural Resource Management Board, with assistance from members of the Wetland Habitats Trust, monitor water quality, ground water, photo points, vegetation, frogs and fish. There is on-going monitoring of birds, bats and other fauna and flora.
Good water quality creates a healthy environment for frogs, turtles, native fish and other invertebrates. A wetting and drying cycle has been established to imitate the river flows as they were prior to the building of the barrages and weirs. This will promote healthy biodiversity in the wetland.
In the past there has been an extensive revegetation pro-gramme within the wetlands and on the adjoining higher land.
Through 'Rivers of Recovery' there has been extensive re-snagging of the river bank and within the wetland.
The application for funds is an ongoing process to allow Paiwalla to continue to grow.
There is currently underway a project to actively target feral animal control around the wetland. This project is funded through the State Community Natural Resources Management Grants.(State NRM Grants)
Recently we have received funds from the State NRM Grants program to enhance the water quality and biodiversity through improved water management.
