To the South African wetland community of practice; decision- and policymakers; scientists; practitioners; students and all members of the public interested in wetland conservation and management: A warm welcome from the South African Wetland Society!
We are excited to bring you a new initiative: NWI 2020 - A virtual celebration of wetland biodiversity.
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the difficult decision had to be made to cancel this year's National Wetland Indaba. In its stead, we invite you to join us on the 28th of October 2020, to explore and learn about various ground-breaking initiatives and work being done across Southern Africa to protect our water resources and their rich biodiversity.
The SA Wetland Society will also be holding its Annual General Meeting during the day for members and non-members alike. The day’s events will conclude with the virtual celebration of the Annual Wetland Awards ceremony. Please remember to nominate your peers before the end of September.
Attendance of this virtual event is free - we only ask that you register beforehand. The programme will be forthcoming so keep watching this space.
Yours sincerely in wetland conservation,
Lulu van Rooyen
Chair: SA Wetland Society
