Australian and New Zealand Cyanobacteria Workshop

 

Join WaterRA for our 7th Australian and New Zealand Cyanobacteria Workshop Online | 29-30 September, 2021

Our cyanobacteria workshops have become an integral event on the global water calendar. Held every second year, this year’s workshop will be a two-day virtual event, showcasing new research advancements and providing a forum for water supply managers, health officials, ecologists, modellers, toxicologists and research experts in cyanobacterial identification and management to meet and discuss all things cyanobacteria.

History of the Australia and New Zealand Cyanobacteria Workshop 

Australian water sources, both natural and man-made, are regularly afflicted by cyanobacteria (blue-green algal) blooms, with the first known official report dating back to the 1800s.

Over the last two centuries, Australia has developed a vastly experienced and knowledgable community of water supply managers, health officials, ecologists, modellers, toxicologists and other researchers in cyanobacterial identification and management.

In 2009 following particularly severe algal blooms along 1,000 kms of the Murray River, the First National Cyanobacteria Workshop was held in Parramatta, New South Wales.

Since the first interation, workshops have become an integral event on the global water calendar. Workshops are now held every second year providing a much needed platform for researchers and managers in the health and water sectors; allowing them to meet, discuss current knowledge and share new findings and combine their expertise for national benefit.
