Project Details

Description

The project’s aim is to map population connectivity and critical habitat for coastal marine megafauna in remotenorthern Australian waters, providing a more informed scientific base for biodiversity monitoring and management.The project will employ cutting edge methods in genetics and movement ecology and unite Indigenous rangerswith marine national park managers and scientists. Expected outcomes include enhanced capacity for monitoringand conservation planning and new partnerships that will improve research capacity in remote environments.Benefits include environmental management led by Indigenous Traditional Owners, sea rangers and marine parkmanagers, and conservation benefits to coastal dolphin and sea turtle species.
