About the Program
WAMSI has partnered with Westport to undertake a major marine science program focused on Cockburn Sound.
The WAMSI Westport Marine Science Program was designed to ensure the environmental impact assessment for Western Australia’s future container port is informed by rigorous, independantscience, and to assist and improve the management of Cockburn Sound now and into the future.
Marine scientists from WAMSI’s partner organisations are delivering over 30 research projects in the fields of physical, biological and social science to increase knowledge of this most important and unique Western Australian coastal ecosystem. More than 100 scientists are working on the science program.
The WAMSI Westport Marine Science Program commenced in 2021 and scientific reports from the program will be published on the WAMSI website.
