The field report Anna Plains and Roebuck Bay [EAAF 111] Benthic Invertebrate Mapping 2016 was produced at the Broome Bird Observatory in October 2016.

The mud flats in Roebuck Bay are choc-a-bloc full of invertebrates for shorebirds. The writing and statistics in the report prove that Roebuck Bay is “the richest inter-tidal mudflat in the world”.

This project has been funded by the Department of Parks and Wildlife partnership with BHP Billiton “Eighty Mile Beach and Walyarta Conservation Program”, with in-kind support from Royal Netherlands Institute for Sea Research (NIOZ) and Wetland Research & Management.
