|The Australian Institute of Marine Science (AIMS) is Australia’s tropical marine research agency and plays a pivotal role in providing large-scale, long-term and world-class research that helps governments, industry and the wider community to make informed decisions about the management of Australia’s marine estate.|
Our research program with the Australian Institute of Marine Science at Scott Reef, off Western Australia, is one of the longest and most comprehensive investigations of a reef system in the world.
BirdLife Australia (BLA) is the largest bird conservation organisation in Australia, operating since 1901 as a not-for-profit body. Through conducting numerous and regular projects which collect data on Australian birds, it has produced Australia's largest wildlife database in The Atlas of Australian Birds, as well as the Shorebirds 2020 database which comprises the most complete shorebird count data available nationally.
The Migratory Pathways of Intertidal Birds project links Woodside's operations in Dampier, Western Australia to the regasification terminals near the Geum Estuary South Korea, the gateway to Siberia and Alaska. With support from Woodside, BirdLife International and BirdLife Australia are working together with Seocheon County Government, the East Asian-Australasian Flyway Partnership (EAAFP) Secretariat and other stakeholders including local communities and NGOs, national government and international agencies to support and enable the long-term, participatory conservation of Geum Estuary.
Woodside has also extended its partnership with BLA to support shorebird studies off the coast of Exmouth, Western Australia.
Woodside has a strong history of commitment to environmental conservation. Our partnership with Conservation Volunteers Australia allows Woodside staff in Perth, Broome and Karratha to make a positive difference towards the conservation of nature, upon which all life depends and is interconnected. Woodside's employees have made a significant contribution to community coast care groups and worked closely with conservationists to rehabilitate and protect coastal and estuarine environments.
