Kings Park Science undertakes state-wide conservation science to build on and share knowledge of Western Australia’s unique and world-renowned biodiversity.

The Science team undertakes integrated and innovative research in native plant biology, underpinning conservation and ecological restoration of Western Australia's biodiversity, and biodiversity generally. Research is focused in the key areas of restoration ecology, seed science, conservation genetics, conservation biotechnology, orchid conservation, and systematics.

Successful conservation outcomes are achieved through world-class research and strategic alliances with industry, land managers, the community and other research organisations.

Kings Park Science operates from the Biodiversity Conservation Centre (BCC), located off Fraser Avenue in Kings Park, which provides energy efficient office and laboratory facilities for staff and volunteers of Botanic Gardens and Parks Authority.
