PHCC is proud to support The Wetlands Centre Cockburn‘s 17th Annual WA Wetland Management Conference, which will be held at the Mandurah Performing Arts Centre on Tuesday, 16th March. This event has been rescheduled from the initially planned dates of 1st & 2nd February 2021.
The 2021 Conference will be held over two days in celebration of an important milestone: the 50th anniversary year of the adoption of the Ramsar Convention on Wetlands in the Iranian city of Ramsar on 2nd February 1971.
The primary objective of the Conference is to provide an annual opportunity for the exchange of information and ideas between wetland practitioners with a focus on the latest developments about how to effectively manage and restore wetlands. The conference will include field visits and pre-conference tours on Monday 15th March, and the conference including keynote presentations, poster presentations and workshops on Tuesday 16th March. Anyone with an interest in wetlands and waterways is welcome to attend the conference.
This year’s conference theme follows the Ramsar theme for 2021 of ‘Wetlands and Water’. Sub-themes include wetland management and restoration, wetland education and wetland policy.
Registrations are open with some places remaining for estuary boat tours on Monday 15th March and for the conference on Tuesday 16th March. Visit the conference website for information and Eventbrite to register.
