Why? To share the wonder of wetlands so they become valued as unique, vibrant and essential community assets. Our Approach: Restoring wetlands of the Murray-Darling Basin and improving the management of wetlands throughout the catchment by linking community, science, business and government. We believe in the power of relationships. When we build relationships between people, business, government and community, we create a shared vision that enable our wetlands to be protected and restored. By investing in relationships, we engender trust between all those we bring together. It is trust that is the bedrock upon which long-term commitment, informed action and collaborative partnerships are based. The Working Group sits between community and government, and is an independent builder of on-ground projects that achieve multiple and negotiated outcomes. The Group does not impose actions, but will steer towards acceptable, workable solutions. We do what we say we are going to do, and we do it through collaboration and co-operation. We work directly with landholders, seek common ground and use the best available knowledge/science to make shared decisions. This approach requires us to be adaptive and flexible, which means that if things change, then we can change too. It is this capacity to creatively resolve ÔwickedÕ problems in a win- win-win (community Ð government Ð environment Ð Aboriginal/cultural) way that underpins our success.
