Today a busy port servicing gas refineries and mineral ore processing continues to develop in Dampier. It provides scientists from the Western Australian Museum with the unique opportunity to observe and document the effects of industry on the surrounding natural habitats and marine wildlife. Journey through natural and manmade habitats as the researchers reveal the expected and the unexpected. The scientists observe and study the wildlife, from sharks to shrimps and worms to whales, looking at both the common and the bizarre.

What scientists reveal suggests that it may be possible for people and wildlife to coexist. But one accident and much of the marine life could be destroyed.

Dampier is truly a place where life exists on the edge.
