The Wetlands Conservation Society was formed in 1985.

Many of the founding members had been part of the campaign to protect the North Lake wetlands from the construction of Farrington Road in September 1984.

Initially the WCS focussed on protection of the Beeliar Wetlands that are faced with ongoing threats. This campaign led to the establishment of the Beeliar Regional Park in the Cities of Melville, Cockburn and Kwinana.

The WCS has now extended its campaign interests to wetland conservation throughout the State and it regularly makes submissions to development proposals, and policy and planning documents related to wetlands in WA.

In addition to this, the WCS is represented on a variety of government and public committees involved with environmental issues.
