The Kimberley Islands Biological Survey (2006-2013) was undertaken to gain a better understanding of the biodiversity of many of the islands along the Kimberley coastline in north-west Western Australia.

This survey provided detailed, comprehensive information about the fauna and flora on pdf24 of the region’s largest islands

This information has:

  • built on existing knowledge of targeted components of biodiversity
  • identified locations of species susceptible to mainland threats
  • provided baseline information for future monitoring/surveys
  • increased the knowledge base available to inform conservation management decisions in the future
