In my time as Director of the Australian Museum I have had very few, if any, prouder moments than standing on Lizard Island outside the newly refurbished and rebuilt research station complex, for the launch of the Ian Potter Centre for Tropical Marine Research and associated facilities. The Museum now has one of the world's finest tropical marine research stations.
At the same time as we were launching the upgrade of the Research Station we were finalising the Museum's Science Research Strategy which comprehensively outlines the science research priorities for the Museum for the next five years. Importantly, the strategy shows clearly how the Australian Museum Lizard Island Research Station is a key part of the Museum's science research effort.
