Training, funding and employment

The wealth of information on wetlands continues to grow. Networking with other groups, research and looking at past results, and getting out on the ground all adds to the information pool.

Information and links on this page include those related to wetland training, funding and employment.

A series of on-line education packages have also been prepared as a resource for people who want to learn more about wetlands and can be found in the on-line education modules section.
