In just a few short years we have:

  • Developed a Fairy Tern Conservation Guide and regional conservation strategies for the South West 
  • Discovered how fugitive lead in Esperance is transferred through the environment
  • Discovered how seabirds and bat communities are responding to climate change
  • Discovered the presence of selenium contamination in the Albany waterways
  • Discovered methyl-mercury contamination in Cockburn Sound
  • Discovered the extent to which road transport is spreading GM canola across our South West
  • Collected vital information on the ecological outcomes of feral predator eradication on islands
  • Collected vital information on ecosystem development in re-vegetated farmland in the Gondwana Link and on the fauna of Bush Heritage Reserves
  • Developed and road-tested a fauna sampling training program to build community monitoring capacity in natural resource management
  • Assisted in the development of a management plan for an Indigenous Protected Area
