Australian Mangrove and Saltmarsh Network (AMSN) Conference 2022

The new AMSN 2022 conference dates have been confirmed.

We hope to see you in Ballina from the 4th – 7th October.

No abstracts will be carried over, so please ensure you submit an abstract for consideration.

Conference Theme:

'Looking back to move forward'

The AMSN was established to address the management issues that face tidal wetland habitats around the world.  As the tidal zone shifts with sea level rise this need is increasing.  The conference will bring together researchers, coastal managers, industry representatives and members of community groups who work across mangrove and saltmarsh landscapes.

The conference theme is ‘looking back to move forward’.  We hope to bring together, in-person and virtually, Australian and international colleagues to share their findings, ideas and experiences of studying and managing intertidal wetland systems.
