Marine Life of the Dampier Archipelago - WA Museum / Woodside

Between 1998 and 2000 a partnership between the Western Australian Museum and Woodside Energy Ltd. was formed to survey and collect the marine flora and fauna of the Dampier Archipelago. Techniques employed during the surveys of the Dampier Archipelago included SCUBA diving, shore collecting, dredging, underwater photography of living specimens and video recording of the ocean floor, which resulted in the recording of more than 4 500 species, including 268 new to science. Many publications resulted from this survey and a website was created to distribute this valuable information.
