Wildlife Marine is an independent Australian research entity which undertakes scientific exploration and contracted consultancy to international standards. Founded in late 2011, it actively identifies and investigates gaps in contemporary scientific knowledge, and conducts targeted projects to answer the needs of managers, NGO's and regulatory agencies. Many research projects conducted under the Wildlife
Marine banner have been published or are currently in review in high-quality international journals.
Wildlife Marine has traditionally focused on shark and fish projects, however terrestrial and coastal projects are being increasingly undertaken. Project undertakings include designing and implementing field, laboratory and desktop research from the ground-up. Areas of specialty include:
- Animal and biota surveys including visual censuses and remote video capture
- Tagging and tracking marine fishes, sharks and turtles
- Quantifying the behaviours and interactions of marine predators and prey
- Age, growth and demography of sharks and commercial fishes
- Reducing human-shark interactions including aerial detections and in-water repellants
- Risk assessments of marine and bird species
- Developing and presenting workshops for Governments, universities and NGO's
- Collation, analysis and refinement of Government strategic and operational plans
- Total project design and implementation
