Harry Butler Institute
Murdoch University has joined with global energy producer Chevron to establish the Harry Butler Institute, an initiative that honours the legacy of one of Western Australia's environmental pioneers and aims to shape the next generation of leaders in conservation and environmental management. The Harry Butler Institute, which will be located at Murdoch University, will offer new academic pathways for students and support research programs promoting sustainability and environmental protection. As founding partner, Chevron sponsors the establishment of the Chevron Harry Butler Chair in Environmental Management and Biosecurity. The Harry Butler Institute will provide new generations of students with the opportunity to undertake high quality research in biosecurity science and environmental science. Our students will have the opportunity to work directly with industry and continue to demonstrate how it is possible to achieve outstanding environmental outcomes based on excellence in both scientific research and industry practice.
