Australian Marine Mammal Centre
The Australian Marine Mammal Centre is based in Hobart in the Australian Antarctic Division's Science Branch. The Centre has five staff and one student plus an extensive research community throughout Australia, representing over 20 institutions. A stakeholder advisory committee and a marine mammal scientific committee worked with the Centre's staff to review the priority research needs and to ensure cross-jurisdictional integration of the work program.
The Centre was originally established with funding from the Australian Government's Commonwealth Environment research facility program and existing staff and resources from the Australian Antarctic Division's marine mammal research group.
