Early results from WAMSI's crocodile survey in Western Australia's north suggest their numbers have tripled over the last 30 years.
School’s out on tropical fish nurseries in the Kimberley but WAMSI researchers have now determined the best way to get a glimpse of their amazing life and habitat.
As the annual humpback whale migration begins from the Antarctic to the Kimberley coast, one WAMSI project, working to model their spatial distribution, is looking to combine satellite imagery and bathymetric LiDAR for the first time.
A WAMSI team is closely monitoring the Kimberley’s coastal and estuarine environment to better understand how present levels of organic nitrogen and carbon play a role in sustaining marine productivity.
A school of box jellyfish found off the Kimberley coast in Western Australia may be the first of the species to be recorded in deep water.
USING cutting-edge genomic analyses researchers are investigating how the Kimberley marine environment’s unique conditions affect organism movement in the region.
The waters of the Bardi Jawi Indigenous Protection Area (IPA), 160km north of Broome, are paradise for seagrass: warm water, lots of light and a pristine, protected environment means these seagrasses grow fast, so why are they so short?
Have your say about how you would like to see the Kimberley coast managed in the future!
The first of several legal research agreements between WAMSI and Traditional Owners of the Kimberley has been signed paving the way for a consistent and respectful partnership approach to conducting marine science in the region.
The Bardi Jawi Rangers have been tagging turtles with satellite transmitters to discover more about their genetics, life cycle, travel and feeding patterns.
