Wetland Interviews Initiative

As a diverse community of wetland scientists, it is imperative that we increase and further promote the information and knowledge exchange that currently exists between individuals and between countries. To facilitate the knowledge exchange of wetland science, we interview researchers and practitioners worldwide. The primary goal of Wetland Interviews is to share lessons learned, challenges, and experiences in wetland research and conservation. Through this effort, we also incorporate a Wetland Legends Series, holding interviews with distinguished and prominent wetland researchers and practitioners. If you would like to suggest a Wetland Legend or participate as an interviewee, please let us know! Email swsmediateditors@gmail.com.

Wetland Interviews is hosted by the International Chapter and the SWS Webinar Committee, in collaboration with the SWS Media Initiative. Wetland Interviews will be aired live on Facebook Live but can be viewed at any time on the Society of Wetland Scientists’ YouTube Channel, under 'Playlists.’
