The last financial year saw significant growth in network sizes and content generation across our social media platforms.

Our News@CSIRO blog reached 200 000 total views and our CSIRO Facebook page more than doubled in network size.

Our @CSIROnews Twitter account became the second most followed government account in Australia.

Our CSIRO YouTube channel reached 1 000 000 total views.

We held our first live-streamed events; a lecture on shark tagging and two live Q&As on marine debris and biodiversity.
