The Wetlands Centre Cockburn invites all interested persons to contribute plenary presentations, poster presentations and/or workshop presentations to its 17th Annual Wetland Management Conference to be held at the Mandurah Performing Arts Centre on Tuesday, 2nd February in celebration of World Wetlands Day. The 2021 Conference Festival will be held over two days in celebration of an important milestone: the 50th anniversary year of the adoption of the 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.
This year’s theme follows the Ramsar theme for 2021 of ‘Wetlands and Water’. Sub-themes include wetland management and restoration, wetland education and wetland policy.
For the 2021 conference, we are seeking contributions that support this theme or the subthemes and demonstrate innovative wetland conservation and rehabilitation practices, examples of the multiple use and wise use of wetlands, and partnerships between government, industry, community and school groups that improve wetland health and enhance our understanding and appreciation of the value of wetlands. In addition, we are also looking for current wetland projects, programs and achievements.
