About the project
The Ningaloo Research Program was a collaboration between CSIRO’s Ningaloo Collaboration Cluster, the Western Australian Marine Science Institution (WAMSI), the Australian Institute of Marine Science (AIMS), the Sustainable Tourism Cooperative Research Centre, the WA Departments of Environment & Conservation and Fisheries and a number of universities (Murdoch, Curtin, UWA, Edith Cowan, Australian National University and University of Queensland). Significant effort was also put into working with local communities and enterprises.
Conducting the research as a strategic collaboration enabled the involvement of a diverse range of marine, social and economic researchers who worked to better understand both the natural and human systems of the Ningaloo region.
The intent of the research program was to provide information that could be used to assess and modify current management strategies, where appropriate, to ensure the sustainability of valued marine resources and human communities far into the future.
The outcomes produced by these researchers substantially increased knowledge about Ningaloo and its biodiversity, laying a good foundation for ongoing research and management in the region.
