Fogg Dam is located in an 'Important Bird Area' (IBA)

The Adelaide & Mary River Floodplains are an Important Bird Area (IBA) in Australia.  Fogg Dam is in the Adelaide River floodplain.

The Important Bird Areas (IBA) program is an international non-governmental conservation scheme lead by BirdLife International Partners such as Birds Australia.

IBAs are sites of international importance for bird conservation.  They are small enough to be practical targets for conservation management but large enough to meet the global IBA criteria.

The Australian IBA program is to help protect a network of sites critical for the conservation of Australia's birds by:

  • promoting IBAs as a tool for biodiversity conservation planning

  • encouraging government to prioritise conservation at IBAs (e.g. in grant-giving schemes)

  • encouraging and facilitating local community-based groups and land-owners to manage land sustainably and conserve key bird species
