In 2023, the findings from the review of the 2015 Gippsland Lakes Ramsar Site Management Plan were released along with updates to the risk assessment.

A consultative and collaborative process was conducted through meetings and workshops to review and update the Plan. We worked with the responsible agencies, Traditional Owners, technical experts, and other stakeholders to review and analyse available data and evidence.
