Over 80 people joined our webinar on November 8th about Initiative 2: Healthy Coastal Habitats and Sustainable Development.

Our project officers shared details on many projects funded by the Marine Estate Management Strategy that focus on safeguarding coastal habitats in NSW and highlighted available resources through these projects.

Eleven speakers presented on a range of projects such as reconnecting fish habitats, ICOLL management, coastal floodplain drainage management, determining responsibility for breakwaters.
