Bittern Summit Registrations OPEN


Registration opens today – sign up now

The iconic Australasian Bittern is the focus of a summit in Leeton on 1-4 February 2022, designed to advance the conservation of this cryptic species. 

The Australasian Bittern Conservation Summit 2022 is a unique opportunity to connect with scientists, conservationists, wetland managers, birdwatchers and farmers who share a passion for Bitterns.

Bitterns are listed as an endangered species in Australia and only about 2,000 birds remain globally, so we are keen to connect with people who have an interest in its survival.

Hosted by Riverina Local Land Services, the Summit is the first time such a conference has been held, offering an amazing opportunity to see and hear about all things Bittern.
The Summit offers an engaging program, with unique tours to the key Bittern wetlands of the Riverina, including the internationally recognised Fivebough Wetland and bittern-friendly rice crops.

Expert speakers from across Australia and New Zealand will cover a range of topics, including innovative monitoring methods, wetland management and restoration.
