The most common threatened specie in the Kooragang Wetlands is the birds. There are 26 threatened species of waterbirds in NSW, which include the Australian painted snipe, Australasian bittern, brolga, curlew sandpiper and freckled duck. Many species are threatened by the loss and degradation of wetland habitats,due to:
- Clearing and draining of wetlands for agricultural and urban development.
- Too many foxes disturbing when nesting.
- Alterations to flooding patterns due to river regulation and climate change.
- Disturbance at feeding and roosting habitats.
