We have the knowledge to protect, manage and restore whole landscapes. Our researchers work across entire landscapes, with a deep understanding of interactions between landform, climate, soil, biota and human activities.
Our research aims to help Australia better manage its river basins and groundwater resources, and improve social, economic and environmental benefits through water resources management. We also apply our expertise to international water management projects.
We work to understand the role of the atmosphere in the Earth system and provide comprehensive, rigorous science to help Australia understand, respond to and plan for a changing climate.
We are working to halt the decline in Australia's biodiversity. Our goal is to build better understanding of our species and ecosystems for better management.
We are working to protect Australia from biosecurity threats arising from global travel and trade and exacerbated by urbanisation and climate change. Our goal is to deliver solutions to ensure Australia is prepared and ready to respond to existing and emerging risks to protect our environment, our agricultural industry and our way of life.
Australia’s natural species and ecosystems are highly vulnerable to climate change and will have difficulty adapting to the rate and extent of projected changes. Many species are at risk because they are restricted in geographical and climatic range.
