Science Education

We live in a world which is ever more complex. SEFARI is committed to the use of research and knowledge to help us better understand the world around us, and to make better decisions. Science education underpins all our work – on the premise that learning is for everyone, and certainly not confined to the school classroom. We have a rich and varied environment across all our country, and SEFARI works with organisational partners and land managers to utilise it for shared learning and experience.

Harnessing Data

There is no doubt we live in an ever evolving and developing world. That brings huge challenges, and only by understanding our world better can we make the best informed decisions across policy and commercial spheres, and in our own lives.
