Pictured above is the Faculty of Science at Charles Darwin
University, formerly the Northern Territory University. The head
office of the Tropical Savannas CRC was located here. However,
researchers were located right across Australia's savanna regions,
see map at right.

Welcome to the Website of the former Tropical Savannas CRC,
which stands for the Cooperative Research Centre for Tropical
Savannas Management—or Tropical Savannas CRC for short.
Australia's tropical savannas cover almost a quarter of the
continent ranging from Townsville on the East Coast across the
Gulf, Top End and over to the Kimberley. The CRC carried out
research right across this region.
The Tropical Savannas CRC was first established in 1995 by the
National CRC Program and renewed in 2001. The Centre
closed at the end of 2009.
The CRC's aim was to help ensure that the vast area of the
savannas was healthy and managed to provide long-term benefits
(economic, aesthetic, social and cultural) to those who use them
and to sustain the biodiversity and habitat endemic to them.
You can read about our research, publications, and
education programs in the various sections of this site. Go to our
Savanna Information section to link to the websites we
have developed on fire management, land management, general
knowledge and innovative school programs.
