2018 Ningaloo Outlook Symposium

2018 Ningaloo Outlook Symposium

The third Ningaloo Outlook Symposium was held on the afternoon of the 1st March 2018 at the IOMRC facility located at the University of Western Australia, WA.

The purpose of this symposium was to bring together interested persons from BHP, CSIRO, marine park managers, the scientific community and interested stakeholders to present research findings from the Ningaloo Outlook partnership in an open and inclusive forum. We were particularly fortunate to have Dr Beth Fulton from CSIRO as our key note speaker and special guest speakers from Exmouth School and St Mary’s Anglican Girl’s School.
