Braided Rivers 2020 Symposium Presentations: Advances & Emerging Issues in Managing Braided River Ecosystems
Braided Rivers 2020 Symposium Presentations: Advances and Emerging Issues in Managing Braided River Ecosystems
This forum carries on from historic workshops held at Environment Canterbury to update managers and researchers on black-fronted tern research and management, and a TAG (Technical Advisory Group) workshop with a wider focus on braided river birds. A subsequent workshop, hosted by the Ashley Rakahuri Rivercare Group, resulted in the creation of BRaid in 2006. In the last few years, these events have grown in popularity, attracting a more diverse audience. However, the aim remains the same: to freely and openly share information and research and create a networking opportunity for those working to protect and restore these globally rare ecosystems and the endemic taonga species that inhabit them.
