Auckland 2023

Coastal restoration: Measuring our progress

Conference 15-17 March 2023

The theme of our 2023 conference will be on monitoring: Coastal restoration: Measuring our progress. It will be held on 15-17 March 2023 and hosted by the AUT Department of Environmental Science. Indoor sessions will be held at AUT, City campus, Building WG, level 2, 55 Wellesley Street East, Auckland Central.

Fieldtrips will be held around the Auckland Region. These photos below are from Te Henga / Bethells Beach where we will go on Friday the 17th.

Keep an eye out for the programme, which will appear around here.

We are keen to have some highschool students attend the conference too and for this purpose we are collecting $100 donations, each of which will allow one student to attend. If you’d like to contibute to this please or donate via the widget at the very top of this page.

A regular and popular feature of our conferences is the “Regional Roundup” session, with updates on coastal restoration work happening around Aotearoa. Groups are invited to give a 5-minute talk on their coastal work. This year there will also be a separate session giving students the opportunity to give a 5-minute “lightning” presentation on their research. If you wish to give a presentation during either of these sessions please indicate that when you register. A timed PowerPoint template will be sent to all who have registered. This can be helpful, but it is optional to use.

An optional post-conference fieldtrip is being planned. Accommodation has been booked for 18 people for Friday 17 March 2023 and the Saturday will be spent learning about the island and its coastal environment. Details will be posted here and sent to those indicating their interest during registration.

Keep an eye on this page where details will be posted when they become available.

In the event of cancellation due to covid- or other restrictions, the event will be rescheduled if feasible, or attendees will be reimbursed.

The conference is being made possible by the generosity and sponsorship of AUT Department of Environmental Science, Gold sponsor Biological Heritage National Science Challenge, Bronze sponsor Eagle Technology and sponsor Coastlands Plant Nursery as well as a very generous anonymous donor. If you would also like to sponsor or donate to keep this conference affordable to all, please to discuss options.
