Site summary
The IBA has supported more than 1% of the global population of Plumed Whistling-Duck. It also provides habitat for the near threatened Australian Bustard and the biome-restricted Yellow-tinted Honeyeater. It has supported up to 116,000 waterbirds when conditions are suitable (i.e. when the lake is inundated), but no other waterbird species has been recorded in numbers that reach IBA thresholds.

Roger Jaensch of Wetlands International provided review comments and interpretation on the habitat and waterbird information.
