Our schools and community education programs operate throughout metropolitan and regional Western Australia, and at the Western Australian Fisheries and Marine Research Laboratories at Hillarys Boat Harbour.
The Community and Education team provides a variety of initiatives to encourage the wider community to engage with fisheries and the aquatic environment. People’s improved understanding of the science and management behind sustainable fisheries will in turn help them to contribute to ensuring a sustainable future for Western Australia's aquatic ecosystems.
Our learning programs are based on current science and data generated by scientific research undertaken by our Research Division. Program themes include ecosystem processes, aquatic species diversity, aquatic habitats, human impacts and aquatic natural resource management.
These programs have been acknowledged for their excellence, including recognition in the Western Australian Premier’s awards, the Western Australian Environment Awards and the Western Australian Science Award (Science Extension Initiative category).
We have a number of on and off-line resources available to school teachers, students, educators and the community to enable them to participate in fisheries and marine education programs and activities.
