2018 Australian Mangrove and Saltmarsh Network Conference - Sydney, 17-20 April 2018

Abstract submissions are now open! The conference will bring together a diverse range of coastal and estuarine wetland researchers, policy makers, academics, students, consultants, local government wetland managers, community advocates, citizen scientists and traditional owners of the lands to share the latest information and 'on ground' experiences. We invite abstracts dealing with either research or management (or a combination of both) of coastal wetlands. We are especially interested in hearing from those from local government who have valuable experience to share in the practical aspects of wetland management. Whether it is high impact academic research, assessment of rehabilitation projects, species specific studies or the initiation of citizen science based monitoring programs, there could be a place for you in our scientific program. With a theme of 'Mangroves and saltmarsh - the urban survivors', we're particularly interested in those working at the interface of our cities and coastal wetlands. Abstract submissions are due Friday 9 February. Read more here.
