Bringing Back the Bunyip Bird Australasian Bittern Conservation Summit 2022

Bringing Back the Bunyip Bird - Australasian Bittern Conservation Summit 2022

Due to the current situation with the Omicron variant of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic the conference organising committee have made the difficult decision to postpone our Australasian Bittern Conservation Summit scheduled for Leeton on 1 to 4 February.

While we understand this will be disappointing, we hope you appreciate this is a necessary step to help keep each other safe in these unprecedented times.

The committee would like to thank you for your support and reassure you that that we are committed to this event proceeding in 2023, which has been re-booked at the Historic Hydro, Leeton for early February 2023.

Registered people have been contacted and their conference registration and payment will carry over to the new dates. However, if not available for these new times, a full refund will be provided.
