Tasman Fracture Marine Park

​​​​​​Discovering the role of rare, endangered and culturally important marine predators in the Tasman Facture Marine Park.

Discovering the role of rare and endangered marine predators in south-west Tasmania​​​​ - Our Marine Parks Grant round 3 project.

This is an Australian Government funded project through the Our Marine Parks grant program.

​​We're exploring the Tasman Fracture Marine Park​, located off the south-west coast of Tasmania, to learn more about the rare and endangered marine creatures that call it home. This includes seabirds, seals, and whales. ​​

We're using a multi-faceted approach to understand their habitat, diet, and abundance in the park. 

Our goal is to provide valuable information on these important species, including their cultural significance to the Tasmanian Palawa people and their role in conservation and fisheries. 

Follow us on our journey as we uncover the mysteries of the Tasman Fracture Marine Park
