The IBA supports large numbers of waterbirds, the lakes regularly supporting more than 1% of the global populations of the congregatory Freckled Duck, Pink-eared Duck, Red-necked Avocet, Grey Teal and Sharp-tailed Sandpiper. The floodplains have once been surveyed when flooded, when they probably supported over 1 million waterbirds. The IBA also supports a population of the restricted-range Eyrean Grasswren.
Roger Jaensch of Wetlands International provided review comments and interpretation on the habitat and waterbird information. Richard Kingsford made aerial survey data available.
