Buru Energy invests in relevant environmental projects to better understand the Canning Basin environment and ensure our activities are undertaken in an environmentally sustainable manner.
Buru Energy’s projects contribute to the understanding of this sparsely populated and under-studied region with information made publicly available to all interested stakeholders. An example of our commitment to research is Buru Energy’s support for a PhD research program at Murdoch University titled “Disturbance Ecology of Bilbies in the Canning Basin”. This project collected fundamental ecological scientific information on the Greater Bilby with collected data made available to traditional owner, pastoral and environmental groups.
Much of the fieldwork associated with the bilby project was undertaken with local ranger groups, taking advantage of traditional knowledge and insights into the environment.
