More than 90 images, giving a glimpse into the rare soft coral gardens of Australia’s remote northwest, have been compiled in a photographic field guide.
A three year WAMSI project has seen CSIRO researchers form long-term partnerships with Indigenous coastal communities to share knowledge and skills in the gathering of data on dugong densities and movements.
Fish and turtles can, at times, consume all of the growth of seagrasses in the Kimberley: that’s among the findings of a three-year study that has combined science and traditional knowledge.
New research has uncovered patterns of biological, genetic and developmental change in marine turtles of the Kimberley that could change the way the region is managed.
A new report confirms that reef systems in the Kimberley continue to produce life amid some of the most extreme conditions yet recorded for reefs worldwide.
An investigation into the ability of bleached corals to cope with dredging related stressors has found that several species of thermally bleached corals cannot clear sediment that has smothered them.
Message from the Department of Parks and Wildlife Director General: The passing of Barry Wilson
The Funeral Service for Dr Barry Wilson will be held at Pinnaroo Valley Memorial Park on Friday (23.6.2017) commencing at 2.30pm.
Former BMT Oceanica Director Dr Luke Twomey has been appointed General Manager and Dr Caroline Ochieng-Erftemeijer has been appointed Research Manager at the Western Australian Marine Science Institution.
Science Minister Dave Kelly announces a $1.29 million funding boost to help develop Western Australia into a global marine science hub.
A community biodiversity survey on the South Cottesloe Beach at the weekend invited participants to log the biota of the beach from the top of the dune to the fringing reefs.
Western Australian scientists say it’s now clear that global ocean warming is catching up with Kimberley coral reefs.
Scientists have confirmed that under global warming, stronger swings of climate variability, on top of the warming trend, will enhance the likelihood of marine heatwave risks off the Kimberley coast.
The differences between how government, industry and the general public want to see the Kimberley region developed could be better understood by effectively identifying and mapping social values, according to researchers.
Scientists have developed new framework for assessing likely impacts of dredging on coral populations, and for evaluating the timeframes and likelihood of population recovery from impacts.
