GLOW was established at Griffith University, Queensland, Australia in March 2018. Professor Rod Connolly directs GLOW, with Professor Brendan Mackey and Associate Professor Chris Brown providing leadership support to newly recruited research and support personnel.
The international, interdisciplinary team advances research under three themes:
What is a ‘healthy’ wetland? How can we measure it efficiently? We’re answering these questions, with new analyses and tools.
We’re mapping current action and guiding potential future actions to protect and restore coastal wetland habitats globally.
We’re working with communities and managers to help them care for coastal wetlands in ways that support biodiversity and human livelihoods.
