This year’s Coastal Forum brought together coastcare groups from the southern Northern Agricultural Region (NAR) recently, and if you missed it, don’t panic – the presentations have just been released!
The event, hosted by Cambridge Coastcare at the WA Ecology Centre in Perth with support from Curtin University, Perth NRM, Northern Agricultural Catchments Council (NACC) and Kings Park and Botanic Garden, provided participants with valuable information from a broad range of innovative coastal research.
Twelve cohesive videos have just been released by Curtin University student Simone Pedrini, who collated each presentation and its slides, providing another invaluable and lasting resource for WA Coastcarers.
Guest speakers on the day included: Ben Croxford, David Merritt, Mike Bamford, Don Bradshaw, Andrew Burbidge, John Huisman, John Statton, Sophie Cross, Ashley Robb, Craig Wilson, Vanessa McGuiness and Angela Rossen.
