Profile

Alan Kendrick is Marine Science Program Leader and leads a team of marine scientists who work on:

  • Research and monitoring to inform the management of marine parks and reserves and threatened or specially protected marine fauna.
  • Marine environmental offset projects associated with the Gorgon, Wheatstone and Pluto industrial developments.
  • Node leadership of the Western Australian Marine Research Institution’s Kimberley Marine Research Program.

Alan’s recent research examines the ecology of intertidal reefs, mangroves and estuarine benthic invertebrate communities and he also works on the design and implementation of long-term monitoring. He has also studied seagrass fishes, particularly the spatial and trophic ecology and reproductive biology of temperate syngnathid fishes (pipefishes and seahorses). Alan has previously worked for Parks and Wildlife as a Marine Planning Officer and has also worked in regionally-based positions as the Marine Park Coordinator for the Shark Bay District and as Marine and Coastal Ecologist for Pilbara Region.
