The mission of TESS is to promote cutting-edge ecological and environmental research in the tropics, and the wise management, conservation and sustainable use of tropical terrestrial and coastal ecosystems, in Australia and internationally.

 

   Our flagship projects are:

Tropical Australia is resource-rich, ecologically fragile and infrastructure-poor, and is undergoing unprecedented growth and development. It is a national priority to develop growth strategies that are ecologically, socially and economically sustainable. TESS is taking a leading role in developing, implementing and exporting solutions for the environmental and sustainability issues faced by Australia and the rapidly developing tropical world.

Want to study with us ?

Students come from all over the world to study with world leading researchers in this unique location situated between the tropical rainforest and Great Barrier Reef. Nowhere else is it possible to visit reef, rainforest and savannah in a single day and return to world-class laboratory facilities in a vibrant and attractive tropical city. And TESS researchers are truly international - we work in over 40 tropical nations around the world! Click here to find out more.
