World Wetlands Day Conference

The Cockburn Wetlands Education Centre invites all interested persons to register for its 10th Annual Wetland Management Conference at the Cockburn Wetlands Education Centre on Friday 31 January 2014 in celebration of World Wetlands Day, which commemorates the signing of the Convention on Wetlands in the Iranian city of Ramsar on 2 February 1971. Registrations should be received by Friday 17 January 2014. For further information about the conference or registering please click below.

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 is intended to bring together community conservation volunteers, landowners, educators, local and State Government officers and private sector environmental officers involved with wetland management.

Registration fees are kept at a minimum to enable all sectors of the community to attend and promote greater understanding and networking amongst the different sectors involved in wetland management ($60 or $20 concessional during 2013).
