The 9th International Abalone Symposium, was held in Yeosu, South Korea. The symposium was attended by more than 200 delegates, and included presentations on international abalone production, marketing; and a range of scientific topics. Some of the papers were published in the Journal of Shellfish Research.
The Journal ‘Ecology and Society’ has published recent findings by researchers from CENRM that will help the agricultural industry develop sustainable land management strategies.
A new project is underway that will monitor the movement and habitat use of south-western Australia’s largest freshwater fish, the Freshwater Cobbler.
CENRM research students are currently investigating if the endemic honey possum plays a significant role in pollination of South West Plants.
The Centre offers a wide variety of projects suitable for Honours, Masters and PhD research degrees. Meet your potential supervisors and find out about the research projects on offer now.
Staff and students have access to a comprehensive range of vehicles, field and laboratory equipment.
We are a leader in the provision of knowledge necessary to better manage natural resources in Australia.
Our vision is to solve natural resource management issues, not just study them.
Our research focuses on enhancing the environmental, economic, social and cultural well-being of south-western Australia and elsewhere. The Centre is located in Western Australia's Great Southern region, a global hotspot of biodiversity, and we are keen to support UWA students and research work in the region.
We complement our research through applied consultancy, education and communication.
