Bringing Back the Bunyip Bird - Australasian Bittern Conservation Summit 2022
The Bringing Back the Bunyip Bird Australasian Bittern Summit 2022 is a unique opportunity to connect with scientists, conservationists, wetland managers, birdwatchers and farmers who share a passion about the iconic Australasian Bittern.
Hosted by Riverina Local Land Services, the Summit will be held in Leeton NSW and from 1-4 February 2022.
The Bringing Back the Bunyip Bird – Australasian Bittern Summit is the first time such a conference has been held. And will be considered by delegates as an amazing opportunity to see and hear about all things Bittern.
We are offering an interesting and engaging program with unique tours to some of the key bittern wetlands of the Riverina including the internationally recognised Fivebough Wetland and bittern-friendly rice crops. Expert speakers from across Australia and New Zealand will cover a range of topics including innovative monitoring methods, wetland management and bittern-friendly rice.
Bitterns are considered a flagship species for encouraging and promoting healthy wetland management. There are many projects currently being undertaken to improve the long term outlook for this species.
The Summit will bring together all those interested in this curious bird to discuss and find out about what is happening and what can be done in the future for the long term survival of the species.
