Delivering flows to help native fish thrive again
Computer models will inform the delivery of Murray-Darling environmental waters to restore the flows that support thriving native fish populations.
Digitising our biological collections
Three quarters of the species that live in Australia don’t exist anywhere else in the world. We're digitisation our collections to make the data easily available to have bigger impacts in areas like conservation, biosecurity and climate change.
Sharks and rays of PNG
A new field guide to the sharks and rays of Papua New Guinea is supporting sustainable use of its shark and ray resources.
Celebrating our flowering giants
Climbing up an 80 m tower is all in a day's work for some scientists. Read how they've been watching over Australia's defining flora - eucalypts - as part of our land ecosystem observatory.
Celebration of life in the forests of Borneo
Timm Döbert spent three years working towards his PhD based in a research camp in Borneo’s lowland rainforests. It was a chance to study close at hand the human impact on a diverse ecosystem – and a privileged opportunity to marvel at the diversity of life on Earth. It’s also a photographer’s paradise. He and colleagues have shared with us some of their favourite images.
Taking a responsible approach to new genetic technologies for conservation
With rats and mice driving sea birds and other animals on remote islands to extinction, scientists and environmental managers are now turning their attention to new genetic technologies that could offer more targeted solutions than traditional baiting programs. Risk analysis and responsible research is front and centre in the discussion.
Voyage to the bottom of the Bight
Samples from the seabed of the Great Australian Bight have yielded 277 species new to science and the answer to a 30-year mystery.
Tracking the predators of the Bight
Tracking the movements of whales, sharks and other apex predators and iconic species is revealing the deepest secrets of the Great Australian Bight.
