The National WaterbugBlitz will allow communities to learn about freshwater biodiversity while assessing the ecological state and condition (health) of the freshwater systems they care about. For one month in the year, participants from all around Australia can discover how healthy their local rivers and wetlands are, using innovative methods developed specifically for citizen scientists. This will capture a waterbug inventory for freshwater ecologists who will generate an annual map of river health across the nation, which catchment managers can use to identify trends in the ecological state of freshwater systems.

Industry and Science Growing Business Investment Resources The Northern Australia CO2 Store SHELL AUSTRALIA PTY LTD

This project builds on work carried out by Geoscience Australia’s (GA) regional assessment of the CO2 storage potential in the Petrel Sub-basin in Northern Territory. Adding to Evans Shoal Joint Venture studies the project aims to:
Perform a detailed subsurface assessment of an area of the Petrel Sub Basin to increase subsurface knowledge and de-risk locations within the basin.
Perform rock property testing
Obtain additional relevant data to conduct appropriate geomechanical, geochemical & geophysical modelling
Assess suitable transportation and sequestration technologies based on Shell Quest & Goldeneye experience
Assess facilities requirements, design surface and downhole equipment & determine well number to accommodate Evans Shoal CO2
Produce a CO2 sequestration location appraisal plan
There are several fields in Bonaparte Basin with high CO2 and this evaluation opens up the opportunity to unlock gas in the region through collaboration/investment with other LNG operators in Darwin to develop a CO2 store.

Industry, Innovation and Science Supporting Science and Commercialisation Science awareness, infrastructure & international engagement The Pesticide Detectives national assessassessment of pesticides in waters UNIVERSITY OF MELBOURNE

The pesticide detectives program will support citizen scientist based research to assess the occurrence of pesticides commonly used around the home in Australias waterways. Citizens will work with researchers from the Centre for Aquatic Pollution identification and management (CAPIM) to conduct a national survey of concentrations of current use pesticides within waterways draining from catchments of varied land-use. The program will assess chemicals commonly found in the home, therefore educating participants about products they may use, how they may enter our waterways and risks they may pose. The data collected will provide impetus for policy and debate to reduce the occurrence of and risks from pesticides in Australias waterways.
