New Zealand Coastal Society Conference 2019

I spent the last couple of weeks in Southland as I attended the NZ Coastal Society conference in Invercargill. It was the first time I joined this conference and I thought it was great. Fantastic venue (Transport World) and even more fantastic organisation. Great speakers and plenty of interesting topics discussed in several presentations and debates.

My highlights were:

I was able to present the findings of my research. If you're interested in the slides, just drop me an email and I'll share them with you.

The conference included a field trip to Waituna Lagoon, which is part of the Awarua wetlands, a recognised Ramsar site since 1976.
