About the conference

The Cockburn Wetlands Education Centre organises the annual Wetland Management Conference at the Cockburn Wetlands Education Centre on or close to 2 February 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.

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. The conference has attracted approximately 160 delegates per annum for the past 11 years.

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 ($70 corporate, $60 general or $20 concessional during 2016). To make this happen we rely on the generous support of our sponsors.
