Swamp Savers

The Fleurieu Swamps are a unique and critically endangered ecosystem. In 2014, students from Fleurieu Peninsula schools learnt about biodiversity and the importance of the Fleurieu Swamps through the Swamp Savers Program.

The Swamp Savers Program is running in 2015. Contact Jodie Sommerville for more information.
