Upcoming biodiversity research seminars in the Kimberley

A series of seminars will take place in Kununurra and Broome next month to highlight some of the biodiversity research projects taking place in the Kimberley.

The Northern Australia Hub of the National Environmental Research Program (NERP) is working with on-ground partners to undertake biodiversity research beneficial to the Kimberley.

The event is supported by Rangelands NRM and Ord Land and Water. Dick Pasfield from Ord Land and Water will also talk about natural resource management activities happening in the East Kimberley.

These seminars will also provide an opportunity for those interested in land management, biodiversity or local research to chat with lead researchers.

Research topics include:

  • opportunities for the pastoral industry to generate income through on-farm conservation;
  • monitoring projects by Indigenous rangers looking at spring water quality, turtles and dugongs;
  • mammal monitoring with camera traps on Morning Station; and
  • conservation and development planning in the Fitzroy catchment.
