The Flooding for Life project aims to restore regular flooding to Gunbower Forest, ensuring the future health of this important wetland forest and the plants and animals that depend on water to flourish
Without the ability to deliver large volumes of environmental water, many of the rare plants and animals of Gunbower Forest will disappear.
The Flooding for Life project incorporates a combination of environmental watering, engineering works, monitoring, indigenous partnership programs and Community engagement. To date, the project has been largely funded through The Living Murray program.
