Birds that are dependent on aquatic ecosystems for some or all of their lifecycle are termed waterbirds. Measuring waterbird abundance and diversity helps to determine the health of the ecosystems they inhabit. We collaborated with Gamilaroi Yuwaalaraay artist, Lakkari Pitt, to help us portray the waterbirds that inhabit the aquatic ecosystems we study. We love the artwork and stories she produced.
