Conservation research is something not may businesses will spare money for. Irukandji aims to play a huge part in conducting studies of habitats and animals (mangroves, salt marshes, sea grass beds, fish, invertebrates and marine mammals) in the wild and on site in order to advance our knowledge necessary to enhance environmental conservation. By becoming involved in important research projects with the Newcastle University and Sea Shelter; through the study of our own Sharks and Fish Family we may be able to help to solve many very important issues facing the Ocean today. If you are studying Marine Science or similar or working on a research project in Port Stephens feel free to contact us;
