Centre of Excellence in Natural Resource Management

Enhancing the environment, economic, social and cultural well-being of South-Western Australia and beyond


The Centre of Excellence in Natural Resource Management (CENRM) is a leader in the provision of knowledge necessary to better manage natural resources in Australia. The Centre's vision is to solve natural resource management issues, not just study them.

The Centre is located in Western Australia's Great Southern region, a global hotspot of biodiversity.

CENRM supports the wider community through research work in the region, involvement in committees and advisory boards as well as developing undergraduate and postgraduate teaching portfolios in collaboration with the UWA Albany and Perth campuses.

Research through CENRM is complimented through applied consultancy, education and communication.

Research themes


As a regionally based group, The Centre of Excellence in Natural Resource Management (CENRM) has maintained networks in national natural resource management activities and has worked with regional organisations and communities on matters where evidence-based science is important to their policy and operation.
