Abstract: Summary The Arafura Swamp is a globally significant wooded wetland in central Arnhem Land providing important habitat for migratory birds and fish. It is, however, threatened by saltwater intrusions from rising sea levels and a range of other threats including some cattle grazing, inappropriate fire regimes and feral plant and animal invasions. Three Indigenous Ranger groups are working to address these management issues but need stronger levels of support to be able to secure ongoing and long-term management solutions for this important wetland.
