In December 2014, the Australian Government announced the successful organisations to lead research hubs under the $142.5 million National Environmental Science Programme (NESP). The National Environmental Science Programme will assist decision-makers to understand, manage and conserve Australia’s environment by funding world-class biodiversity and climate science.
The Marine Biodiversity Hub will research Australian oceans and marine environments, including temperate coastal water quality and marine species, with funding of $23.88 million through the University of Tasmania, led by Professor Nic Bax.
Funding has previously been provided under the CERF and NERP programs.
