Western Australia Marine conservation research

If you believe our forests are essential to our socio-economic development, it is the same way with our coastal areas. This is actually the main reason why it’s important to give importance to our marine environment conservation while we still can.

In certain areas in Perth and the rest of Western Australia, most communities depend on the coastal resources thus making some of these areas over exploited which threatened the rich biodiversity in these areas. Exploitation, destructive fishing and conversion of marine environment into eco-tourism projects and aquaculture are some of the reasons of this degradation of coastal areas.

Sadly, these destructive human activities have great contribution to the reduction of mangroves and coral reeves which lead to loss of fisheries productivity. In addition, it can also affect biodiversity such as the threat to our endangered migratory species.

Now is not yet too late to take part of this responsibility as a resident of Western Australia, or a resident of the planet Earth. Conserve what’s left with our marine environment not only for our future generations but for our own survival.

In Perth, many organisations including the Western Australia’s Department of Biodiversity Conservation and Attractions are now improving and protecting the coastal areas in the region to prevent further impact to human survival.

Ocean research gives us better information about what lives in the depths of our seas, so we can endeavour to keep them safe for future generations to enjoy.
