Division news View All

Western Australia

The WA Division's membership is diverse and includes environmental practitioners from state and local government, utilities, academia, consultancies, mining and construction companies and law firms.

The focus of the WA Division is to disseminate information on emerging and important environmental issues for environmental practitioners.

In Western Australia, key issues include:

  • Clearing of native vegetation
  • Salinity
  • Sustainability
  • Phytophthora dieback
  • Environmental management systems
  • Environmental auditing
  • Air quality
  • Contaminated sites
  • Amendments to environmental legislation.

The WA Divisional Committee meets monthly to ensure a range of seminars, conferences and workshops involving scientists, policy-makers and practitioners  are offered to members and prospective members that address and debate these issues. Social events  provide a great opportunity to meet your peers.

For those considering a career in environmental science, the WA Division will arrange career's nights if there is a demand. At these events, a cross-section of environmental practitioners give presentations followed by an opportunity to mix and mingle over drinks and nibbles. Please contact the Division to express your interest.
