Gallery: documenting the recovery of an iconic wetland

Science & Environment

These images are part of a larger project documenting the transition of the Macquarie Marshes Nature Reserve from a parched desert, at the height of the millennium drought, to a soaked oasis. The photos reveal a revival of the local flora and fauna – flooded forests, colonies of breeding waterbirds, turtles, snakes and, of course, fish.
