Kakadu

In Kakadu, our focus is on research that addresses threats such as fire, weeds and feral cats, both across the landscape and in riparian and floodplain areas. We are also working closely with the Park’s Traditional Owners to identify and undertake action-research partnerships. A new suite of three projects is working to ensure the world-class rehabilitation of the Ranger Uranium Mine site. Other Hub research across northern Australia, on topics such as Indigenous land management, environmental monitoring techniques, fire and carbon, is also generating information to support the management of environmental resources in Kakadu. Our Kakadu-focused research projects are listed below.
