The Lizard Island Research Station operates on a user-pays basis and with great efficiency, but in such a remote tropical location everything is expensive to import and maintain. Visiting scientists obtain research grants to support their projects. These grants do not cover the costs. Station fees are set at the highest rates scientists can reasonably be expected to pay, but there is still often an annual budget deficit. This is funded by our Foundation donors. They also fund capital works at the Station and the doctoral and post-doctoral fellowships that are awarded each year. If it were not for our donor support, the Research Station could not continue.
