Our Projects

Asia is the centre of global marine biodiversity and the myriad island nations that comprise the region rely heavily on Asian waters for sustenance, resources and transport as well as cultural heritage. The Asia Pacific team tackles the challenges of mitigating the huge infrastructure projects which are underway in this fast developing region. From transport infrastructure that spans large expanses of coastal habitat to oceanic and sub-sea resource exploration of remote offshore area, the Asia Pacific projects are typically long term and focus on assessing and minimising impact throughout the lifespan these activities of the exploration and development of process.

Assessing the Status of Tropical Delphinids in Borneo’s Rivers

Lindsay and her team have just been awarded the WDC Bharathi Viswanathan Award for innovative and non-invasive research. This award highlights the contribution of their research into the sparsely distributed delphinid species which are associated with Borneo’s vast meandering waterways. Findings from this study inform management authorities on effective conservation of these vulnerable species.
