Current projects

  1. Social values and aspirations for the coastal waters of the KimberleyThis project describes and analyses the social values of people associated with the coastal waters of the Kimberley, especially Aboriginal community members. These values have been accessed via 150-200 face-to-face interviews through out the Kimberley and in Perth, WA and Darwin, NT. The location and extent of these values were also mapped in interviews and this information has been entered in a Geographic Information System. These values have also been accessed via a Public Participation GIS web-based interface. This enabled us to more widely source the public’s values, aspirations and management preferences regarding the Kimberley coastal waters. The outcome of this research will be social information available for policy development, planning and management. This research project is one of a suite of projects funded by the WA Government and administered by the WA Marine Science Institution. RESEARCHERS. Susan Moore, Halina Kobryn, David Palmer, Jennifer Strickland-Munro, Joanna Pearce, Greg Brown (University of Queensland), Amanda Smith (WA Department of Parks and Wildlife). 2012-2016.
  2. Community values and perceptions regarding the Vasse-Wonnerup Wetland System and ecosystem-based management: Vasse Wonnerup Wetlands Investigation Node: Stage 1. The Vasse Wonnerup Wetland System is a globally-important Ramsar Wetland, however, its values are being compromised by eutrophication, fish kills and urban encroachment. Ecosystem-based management where people are regarded as part of the system’s problems and solutions is being touted as a way forward. This PhD project with student Shivani Purushothaman focuses on (1) local community member mapping of values and threats in interviews and a mapping exercise, (2) a web-based survey to further refine our understanding of the community’s assigned values to the wetland system, as well understand barriers and opportunities for ecosystem-based management, and (3) building scenarios to help progress ecosystem-based management. These scenarios will be informed by the information collected in stages (1) and (2). This research is part of a larger project ‘The Vasse-Wonnerup Investigative Node’ supported by the South West Catchments Council and the Australian Government’s Caring for Country. Partners include Murdoch University and Edith Cowan University. RESEARCHERS: Shivani Purushothaman, SKate Rodger, Susan Moore, Jane Chambers, Halina Kobryn, Maria Ryan (Edith Cowan University). Supported by South West Catchments Council through funding from the Australian Government’s National Landcare Program & the Government of Western Australia. 2014-2018.
  3. Visitor profiles and visiting activities and intentions for the Pilbara Islands. The Pilbara Islands offer a reprieve from the heat of the Pilbara and valued recreation opportunities for the workforce of the Wheatstone natural gas project, plus local residents and others visiting the region. This research project will use a web-based survey of the Wheatstone workforce, plus intercept surveys at boat launching sites, to determine the profile of visitors to the islands, where people go, what they do and what they expect to gain (benefit from) visiting the islands. The results will help manage these islands to protect their high biodiversity values as well as provide benefits for those visiting. Funded by Chevron through the Wheatstone Offset Program and the WA Department of Parks and Wildlife. RESEARCHERS. Kate Rodger, Michael Hughes, Susan Moore, Amanda Smith (WA Department of Parks and Wildlife). 2016-2017. 
  4. Swimming with humpback whales: the visitor experience. Swimming with humpback whales is a new ecotourism product. The first season is planned for 2016 in the iconic Ningaloo Marine Park. This research project focuses on the visitor experience and understanding the long-term sustainability of this activity. Funded by the WA Department of Parks and Wildlife. RESEARCHERS. Kate Rodger, Amanda Smith, Susan Moore. 2016.
