About this Event

The Wetlands Centre Cockburn invites registrations for its 17th Annual WA Wetland Management Conference to be held adjacent to Mandjar Bay at the Mandurah Performing Arts Centre, Western Australia on Monday 1st February and Tuesday 2nd February 2021 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.

Celebrating 50 years! 2nd February 2021 marks 50 years since the Ramsar Convention on Wetlands was first signed, in the city of Ramsar. In recognition of this important milestone The Wetlands Centre has extended its World Wetland Day celebration over 2 days incorporating pre-conference wetland tours and linking with the Peel-Harvey Catchment Council and partners’ sundowner event. The 2-day event has been made possible by the generous support of our sponsors.

This year’s theme follows the Ramsar theme for 2021 of ‘Wetlands and Water’. This year’s theme shines a spotlight on wetlands as a source of freshwater and encourages actions to restore them and stop their loss. We are facing a growing freshwater crisis that threatens people and our planet. We use more freshwater than nature can replenish, and we are destroying the ecosystem that water and all life depend on most – Wetlands. The 2021 campaign highlights the contribution of wetlands to the quantity and quality of freshwater on our planet. Water and wetlands are connected in an inseparable co-existence that is vital to life, our wellbeing and the health of our planet. Sub-themes include wetland management and restoration, wetland education and wetland policy.

Minimising impact The conference strives to minimise its environmental impact by encouraging delegates to car-pool, request e-program booklets and bring their own water bottles. We also provide re-usable coffee mugs, glasses and plates and use recycled paper. We also encourage the display of promotional material on common tables or at exhibition spaces, rather than in conference kits, ensuring only interested persons take the relevant material.

  • City of Cockburn
  • Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions
