Research and conservation

The Uni­ver­si­ty of Ade­laide has launched the Flinders- Baudin Research Cen­tre beside the Flinders Chase Nation­al Park Vis­i­tor Cen­tre. The new field sta­tion will allow for fur­ther research that adds to the cur­rent knowl­edge of the area’s flo­ra and fau­na, as well as inves­ti­gat­ing fire and water resource man­age­ment and restora­tion ecology.

The devel­op­ment of the cen­tre has been a col­lab­o­ra­tive effort between the Uni­ver­si­ty of Ade­laide and the Depart­ment for Envi­ron­ment and Water. Both have shared the vision of main­tain­ing a research pres­ence with­in Flinders Chase Nation­al Park. 

At key times of year vis­i­tors will be able to look through the win­dows into the lab space and see sci­en­tists at work.
