What we do

From its offices in Oceania, Wetlands International works towards wetland conservation outcomes in 10 countries within the region and several neighbouring countries in Asia.

Within the Oceania region, Wetlands International has conducted activities in Australia and New Zealand, as well as in eight Pacific Island countries. In the Pacific, effort has been concentrated in Melanesia, especially Papua New Guinea and Fiji.

Staff based in Australia have also worked in Flyway countries such as China, Thailand and Malaysia, providing support to local offices of Wetlands International.

In all countries, Wetlands International operates cooperatively with national conservation agencies, non-government organisations and wetland managers/owners.

The scope of work undertaken is broad and falls under the four global goals of Wetlands International.
