WAMSI Dredging Science Node researchers recently presented at the Centre for Marine Ecosystems Research Symposium.

The presentations, as part of ECU Research Week, brought together the combined knowledge on Australia’s northern seagrasses and their resilience in the face of dredging.

The WAMSI Dredging Science Node Presentations are available at www.wamsi.org.au/primary-producer-response-dredging#Presentations

The WAMSI Dredging Science Node is made possible through $9.5 million invested by Woodside, Chevron and BHP as environmental offsets. A further $9.5 million has been co-invested by the WAMSI Joint Venture partners, adding significantly more value to this initial industry investment. The node is also supported through critical data provided by Chevron, Woodside and Rio Tinto Iron Ore.
