One of our challenges is formulating advice with limited available information. Our participation in WABSI means supporting science collaborations to help build valuable networks of environmental knowledge as well as access to critical biodiversity information required for informed decision making.
While a lot of effort is being expended to protect the State’s world-renowned native plants and animals, we need to do more. Having the community and business become key partners as well as advocates, means it is a challenge I feel confident we can meet. We’re very supportive of WABSI helping us better understand biodiversity across our State and building a shared resource. It will mean that our conservation areas continue as part of our heritage and contribute to our quality of life.
It is crucial for us to better understand our rich and unique biodiversity through accurate scientific knowledge and good collaboration. The Western Australian Biodiversity Science Institute is a focal point for skills and knowledge to be shared and help define the State’s research priorities to ensure that scientific information meets the dynamic needs of industry.
Science is crucial to ensuring our rich and unique biodiversity assets are here for future generations to enjoy. At the same time, the main drivers of our economy - mineral exploration and processing, broadacre agriculture and tourism - intersect with the State's biodiversity, as does urban development.
