    Description

    The National Environmental Science Programme (NESP) is a long-term commitment to support environmental and climate research, managed by the Commonwealth Department of Agriculture, Water and the Environment. Charles Darwin University is a Partner in the NESP Marine Biodiversity Hub. The Hub is hosted by the University of Tasmania and undertakes nationally-consistent research to help decision-makers manage and conserve Australia’s marine biodiversity. The Hub is structured into research themes in the areas of threatened and migratory species; supporting management decision making; understanding pressures on the marine environment; biophysical, economic, and social assessments; and, science for a sustainable Australia.
    CDU’s participation in the NESP Marine Biodiversity Hub is primarily through collaborative research projects led by Research Institute for the Environment and Livelihoods (RIEL) Senior Research Fellow Dr Peter Kyne. These project’s have focused on the management, conservation, and recovery of threatened and migratory marine species across Northern Australia.
