Kings Park Science is part of the Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions, which 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 unique biodiversity, and biodiversity generally. Successful conservation outcomes are achieved through world-class research and strategic alliances with industry, land managers, the community and other research organisations.

Research is focused in the key areas of restoration ecology, seed science, conservation genetics, conservation biotechnology, orchid conservation, and systematics, with a focus on extension to practitioners and land managers.

Kings Park Science has a long history of successful post-graduate student supervision in collaboration with Western Australian universities and contributes to undergraduate teaching, predominantly in conservation biology and restoration ecology.

Regular science seminars are hosted by DBCA Biodiversity and Conservation Science division for staff, students and general public at various times throughout the year.
