Research themes

Last updated on 08 Aug 2017 

We collaborate with national leaders in ecology and environmental management to increase our science capacity and address knowledge gaps.

We're committed to supporting students and young scientists through scholarships and incentives. Traditional knowledge and ‘two-way learning’ has become increasingly important as we work with Aboriginal partners across the country.

Our 10-year Science Plan (PDF 3mb) aims to build sustainable research partnerships in each state and territory and double the number of collaborative research projects we undertake by 2025.

Our research is focused on 6 flagship research themes, each pivotal to our work, and which address key biodiversity conservation issues in Australia.
