The Reserve is home to a range of fauna species including the vulnerable Floodplain Monitor (Varanus panoptes) and Mitchell's Water Monitor (Varanus mitchelli) (see Figure 6).

Council will continue to solidify its relationships with current stakeholders such as Charles Darwin University and FrogWatch who utilise the Reserve for research purposes. Liaising with these groups to assist with data collection will not only help strengthen relationships but also provide an opportunity for knowledge and data sharing. 5 Image sourced from ReptileWatch, 2012. 6 Image sourced from Griffiths, A.
