Sustainable environments

Western Australia is recognised around the world as a global centre for research and development on sustainability that is not only innovative globally but is practical and relevant to solving WA's problems.

We’re looking for people to take on the challenge of ensuring we’re meeting the needs of current and future generations through integration of environmental protection, social advancement and economic prosperity.

As UWA ecologist, Professor Richard Hobbs, said:

Western Australia, in particular the South West, is one of the most biodiverse parts on the planet. There’s more species of plants and animals here than many other parts of the world and there’s also many threats to them like climate change and fire regimes. As an ecologist it’s a fascinating place to be.

Some projects our teams at UWA are working on include ecosystem restoration and intervention ecology, food and water sensitivities, and the effects of climate on our ocean environments.
