Braided awa past, present, and future, ko ngā wā o mua, ko ngā wā e heke mai, nei, ko tēnei wā.
This seminar at Lincoln University carries on from historic workshops 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 the Ashley Rakahuri Rivercare Group, resulted in the creation of BRaid in 2006. Braid has subsequently run workshops and seminars covering a wide range of issues relating to braided rivers.
This is the only platform in Aotearoa where researchers and stakeholders including commercial operators can come together in one place to present their work to peers and the public alike. The event is free of charge and open to all.
This year, we will be reviewing the progress that has been made, the current situation, and what needs to be done to ensure that the unique birds, animals, and plants that call braided rivers home can endure in an uncertain future.
The draft programme will be added to this webpage soon.
