Yet our scientists face the challenge of knowing too little about the vastness and complexity of the natural environment and about restoring balance to systems under threat.

These challenges are not insurmountable. Armed with a sound foundation in science, information, knowledge and strong partnerships, we can meet the challenges for South Australia. We strive to continually keep our scientific knowledge up to date. We generate and interrogate science and research and use this knowledge to underpin policy and management decisions for South Australia's environmental assets.

Our science and research interests include:
