Abstract

The prospect of dire outcomes for tidal wetlands raises serious and urgent concerns for those currently charged with managing these threatened places. Environmental managers recognise the need to identify and act on pressures and risks faced by such natural ecosystems. An effective monitoring strategy is needed urgently for the description and quantification of habitat condition, their benefits, the threats they face and their survival. Attempts to gain such essential knowledge are however largely thwarted by the popular and insatiable distraction for growth economies instead of seeking alternative sustainable economic practices that account for those all too finite limitations of natural resources, their vulnerabilities and the risks in ignoring expert advice on these matters.
