Notes

  • S6887 - Estimate retained from WPE4 because insufficient new information available to perform an adequate review. Impact of drought decade 2000-2009 on waterbirds generally in Australia suggests numbers may fluctuate across the broad range 25,000-1,000,000.
  • T4368 - Impact of drought decade 2000-2009 on waterbirds generally in Australia suggests numbers may fluctuate.
