The Kimberley Islands Biological Survey (2006-2013) was undertaken by the Department of Parks and Wildlife 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 24 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
