Wetland Wallum Frog Assessment Final Report
Coochiemudlo Coastcare Group has raised concerns with Redland City Council over the ecological health of the Coochiemudlo wetland; a small but ecologically significant wetland on the east coast of Coochiemudlo Island, in southern Moreton Bay. The wetland lies immediately east of the former Coochiemudlo Island landfill, which was an active but unmanaged landfill site between 1972 and 1994. The landfill has subsequently been capped and converted to a community recreation site – Laurie Burns Recreation Area. There are concerns within the community that leachate from the former landfill has contaminated waters within the wetland, reducing the ecological values of the wetland for native fauna and flora.
