The wetland lagoons in Morgan Conservation Park are just one of more than fifty complexes along the River Murray that are managed to mimic natural cycles.

5MU listener, Kenny from Cadell, called Jennie Lenman to express concern for the welfare of pelicans and aquatic creatures in the area when he noticed the water was disappearing from the lagoons.

Darren Willis - Team Leader Floodplains and Wetlands for the SA Murray Darling Basin NRM Board - joins Jennie Lenman in this podcast to explain what is going on.
