A group of Western Australian botanical experts have teamed up to understand the ‘personal space’ of plant species in different environments, in a bid to improve the restoration rates for native landscapes.
A new test for detecting multiple parasites in koalas has been developed by a Perth veterinarian and post-doctoral scientist. The technology will help us understand why so many of the iconic Australian species are becoming sick and dying. Koalas have suffered population declines of over 50 per cent in some Australian states.
Fresh Science is a national competition helping early-career researchers find, and then share, their stories of discovery.
The program takes up-and-coming researchers with no media experience and turns them into spokespeople for science, giving them a taste of life in the limelight, with a day of media training and a public event in their home state.
We run Fresh Science in every state where we secure operational funding. Interested in being involved? Please get in touch.
