The Northern Australia Environmental Resources Hub addressed key research questions to come up with practical, on-ground solutions to some of the north’s most complex environmental challenges through a transdisciplinary research approach.
River flows in the Gulf of Carpentaria are an essential part of the lifecycle of numerous important fishery species in the Gulf. Hub research has built on long-term fisheries partnerships to improve understanding of possible Gulf rivers water extraction impacts on these fisheries.
A partnership between CSIRO, Aak Puul Ngantam Cape York and Microsoft has given Indigenous rangers a helping hand in analysing tens of thousands of images of Cape York coastline. This work combines Indigenous knowledge and artificial intelligence to protect baby sea turtles.
More than 100 Indigenous contributors have created Australia’s first guidelines on how to best strengthen & share Indigenous knowledge in land and sea management. The Our Knowledge Our Way in caring for Country Best Practice Guidelines highlight 23 positive case studies.
Hub research has built on long-term partnerships with fisheries and used a combination of on-water sampling, data analysis and satellite imagery to improve understanding of the possible impacts of water extraction from Gulf rivers on fisheries.
Collaborative research between CSIRO, Microsoft and Aak Puul Ngantam (APN) Cape York is working with an AI-infused cloud-based system that can quickly analyse 1000s of aerial photographs to give rangers the information needed to protect turtle nests from feral predators.
Did you know Gulf of Carpentaria coasts are critically important habitat for migratory shorebirds? These birds rely on the worms, crabs, clams and other food of the Gulf mudflats and sandflats to fatten up for their journey.
Remote communities on Cape York Peninsula face heavy loads of marine debris. The remoteness of Cape York communities makes it a challenge to deal with their coastal waste and debris which mostly comes from other places.
A new short film featuring Gooniyandi artist and Traditional Owner Mervyn Street is focusing attention on the Kimberley’s Fitzroy River, explaining the role of the river in sustaining the health of the surrounding Country
The Daly River ‘Fish and Flows’ partnership between Wagiman Traditional Owners and researchers from several universities and the NT Government has been running for 13 years. It has also increased the capacity of researchers to work with Indigenous organisations.
