Reflections: Water for the Environment in Victoria 2018-19 highlights case studies of animals, plants and communities that have benefited from water for the environment in 2018-19, including:

  • vulnerable or threatened species that have survived and thrived due to environmental flows
  • environmental flows that supported native fish species, such as Murray cod, Australian grayling, golden perch and river blackfish,
  • partnerships with Traditional Owners to plan, deliver and monitor the outcomes of environmental watering
  • stories of local communities who have contributed to these outcomes, by partnering with management agencies, collecting scientific data and providing local knowledge to inform planning decisions.
