Join RSWA and explore WA science Coming up

Discover some of the latest scientific research and achievements by WA scientists.  RSWA organises monthly presentations that provide the opportunity to hear and meet scientists who are leaders in their fields. Topics have covered a spectrum from treetop studies of WA’s wedge-tailed eagles, to telltale signs of ancient mega-tsunamis that hit WA coastal areas, to the plant destroyer that is attacking native species in southwest WA, to the latest developments in protecting the marine ecosystems of the Kimberley region. All are welcome...
