Our conservation and management research is conducted in three key areas:

  • Biodiversity conservation — investigating the effects of environmental change on Antarctic and subantarctic terrestrial, coastal and marine ecosystems.
  • Wildlife management — informing conservation and management options for Antarctic wildlife affected by past exploitation and current human activities.
  • Fisheries — research informing the management of fisheries for krill, toothfish and icefish, and addressing the bycatch of seabirds and other non-target species.
