Braided River Symposium

Cost: Free including morning and afternoon teas thanks to our event partners LINZ and assistance from ECan.
Format: Similar to last year, however this year’s event will include a speakers’ forum to discuss questions and topics presented by you, the attendees. Please submit these with your online booking form .
Background: This carries on from historic workshops to update managers and researchers on black-fronted tern research and management, with a wider focus on braided river birds. In the last few years these events have grown in popularity, attracting a more diverse audience. However the aim remains the same: to freely and openly share information and research, and create a networking opportunity for those working to protect and restore these globally rare ecosystems and the endemic taonga species that inhabit them.
