Esperance Lakes are Drowning!

We have recently had the pleasure of completing post production on the documentary “Wetland Wonderland – The story of the Lake Warden wetland system”. Produced & Directed by Serena Shaddick, the video looks into the threats to the Esperance wetland system. Featured is the impact that the last 100 years of land clearing in the area has had in causing excessive ground water levels which is flooding the lakes. This has resulted in an increasing loss of bird habitat and the drowning of the surrounding vegetation.

The film was arranged by the Esperance Regional Forum as a medium to engage the wider community and land owners. We are happy to hear the film has already received great community feedback. The film will be available to view online soon. If you are interested keep an eye on our facebook page for details.
