Australian Marine Mammal Centre hosts important research

More than $700,000 in funding for non-lethal whale research was announced by the Australian Government in June. A $267,000 Indo-Pacific Cetacean Research and Conservation Fund (IPCF) will support four three-year projects in Papua New Guinea, Pakistan, Fiji and Bangladesh while a $440,000 Bill Dawbin Postdoctoral Fellowship was awarded to Dr Amanda Hodgson of Murdoch University for applied cetacean research. The work will be administered through the Australian Marine Mammal Centre based at the Australian Antarctic Division. The international work of the centre recognises the large-scale movements of many marine mammal species and accommodates Australia’s national and international obligations.
