Twenty-two DERM, DEEDI and CSIRO staff—known as the Ecosciences Precinct Dragons—took part in the 2012 Chinese New Year Corporate Dragon Boat Regatta held at South Bank on Saturday 11 February 2012.
Competing against 21 corporate teams, the Ecosciences Precinct Dragons finished in 11th place.
Team member and DERM Assistant Director-General Christine Williams said the race provided the opportunity to market the collaborative science work undertaken at the Ecosciences Precinct to the community.
The Ecosciences Precinct is Australia's first centre dedicated to solving some of the country’s biggest environmental challenges, such as climate change, biosecurity, air and water quality, and sustainable industries.
