Thomas Schroeder explains how remote sensing is used to monitor the Van Diemen Gulf.
How well do we know the aquatic plants and animals of northern rivers, wetlands and estuaries?
Some species of fish that look the same are actually different species and new species are still being discovered. Scientist Mark Kennard explains that the Daly River has a high biodiversity value with an array of different fish species. Understanding these different aquatic plants and animals is important in order to effectively manage for long-term resilience.
What is under the surface of tropical floodplains in Kakadu National Park? Tiffanie Nelson explains.
Marine turtle and dugong are priority species for the Wunambal Gaambera Aboriginal Corporation’s Uunguu Rangers as well as federal conservation management plans. A new way to monitor these populations has been developed by the project team using a boat-based methodology. The team consists of the Ranger group, the North Australian Indigenous Land and Sea Management Alliance Ltd (NAILSMA) and CSIRO.
Researchers have identified gamba grass and other invasive weeds as a potential threat to landholder involvement in environmental offset programs such as the Carbon Farming Initiative.
Strategic savanna burning is one way to reduce Australia’s carbon emissions and create new markets in northern Australia, but the increased fuel load and emissions from weed infestations could make it unfeasible.
