Completion of Six Year Biodiversity Mapping Project off Western Australia

A partnership between Australian Museums, Universities, and researchers from across the country supported a six year biodiversity mapping project.  The project looked at 181 sites and 475,000 square kilometers of ocean.  That’s about the size of 5 states of Maine.  Results from the series of expeditions will help guide the development of protection plans for the area.  Analysis of the results will inform a better understanding of ecosystem dynamics.
