The Mandalong Wetlands are a feature of the valley and many residents are committed to protecting these habitats.

The Dept of the Environment has an excellent website with information on Australian Wetlands and their environmental importance, program funding etc.
Centennial Coal reports on the Mandalong Wetlands in its Annual Environment Management Report. The reports are prepared by Hunter Eco and provide comprehensive environmental monitoring data, from baseline surveys conducted in April 2009 by Colin Driscoll, through to the most recent survey in November 2013.

The Hunter Eco reports cover all 8 wetlands in the Mandalong area and includes weeds, any subsidence impacts, water chemistry, biodiversity changes, impacts from feral deer and grazing etc.
