Cattle, cane, cropping, coral. That’s the balance the Queensland ecosystem has to strike to help reduce sediment and improve Great Barrier Reef health.
The Great Barrier Reef is one of the world’s iconic ecosystems, but how important is it to Australians? Very, new surveys reveal.
Today’s energy systems will not be sufficient in 2050, and remote Australian communities are likely to bear the brunt. Scenarios workshops held in Alice Springs are helping design energy solutions for the future.
New technology fitted into an aeroplane and flown over parts of the Great Barrier Reef will provide a more detailed survey of coral reef health than ever before and give a boost to global reef science.
Tasmania’s bushfires have hurt not only the state’s forests, but also the honey industry that depends on access to the region’s unique trees.
Ocean acidification will hurt some parts of the Great Barrier Reef more than others.
Scenario modelling is a tool used by climate scientists to project what the future might look like based on different scenarios. Now, this same tool is being used to benefit the world’s biodiversity and ecosystems.
Over the next decade, The Homeward Bound project will give 1000 female scientists the tools to become influential, global decision makers of the future. Its debut voyage will depart later this year, with four CSIRO scientists on board.
