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.
