WLI's Chris Rostron attend (virtually!) the 11th INTECOL wetland conference, hosted by New Zealand partners.

He actively participated in sessions on how to engage people in wetland conservation, the pros and cons of citizen science (featuring a recently published survey on the state of the world's wetlands that we co-authored), a workshop on developing a global wetland school and a session on how we get people 'into' wetlands with case studies from WLI members (see screen shot above).

We partnered with the NZ Wetland Trust amongst others, and learnt a lot about what's going on across the world for wetland scientists, and particularly the issues around local and indigenous knowledge and engagement, the theme of this conference.
