    Kakadu National Park is located to the east of Darwin in the Northern Territory of Australia. The main wetlands in the park include mangroves, salt flats, freshwater flood plains, and small permanent lakes (billabongs) as well as springs and pools along the many streams. The wetlands contain a high diversity of plants and animals that have adapted to the marked seasonal flooding and drying and/or to the tidal range. Threats include invasive species, salinisation of freshwater wetlands, recreational activities, and potential pollution from uranium mining. The park is managed jointly by the federal government and traditional Indigenous owners.
