The Australian Mangrove and Salt Marsh Network is an informal network established in 2008 primarily to promote sustainable communication and collaboration amongst stakeholders, including postgraduate students. Our further aim with this has been to promote and support community mentoring and participation. We believe these outcomes are best achieved by an informal association under the registered business name.

This applies especially where there are specific matters to be addressed, when members can form adhoc committees to deal with emerging issues of both national and local interest.

All matters will be dealt with in an encompassing wider international context; especially, since a large part of our membership includes Australian-based researchers with international standing in their fields. For example, recent annual meetings have been enthusiastically endorsed and patronised by this group, with numerous experienced international speakers sharing thoughts and ideas. The Network further presents an invaluable opportunity for interested postgraduate students, and we hope to gain their collaboration in the network starting with specific presentations and extending to other contributions.
