If you’re a keen marine or environmental science bachelor student or postgrad, come join the research team for three months.

Help contribute to ongoing research projects for baseline data of the surrounding area, assist aquaculture operations and get hands-on experience in an operational algae lab. Guided by your Field Research Officer.

Our mission is to facilitate truly independent marine research, exploration and discovery throughout marine and coastal environments in the Kimberley region.

Discover one of the last few places classed as a marine wilderness.
