A 25-day field experience in New Zealand (North Island) and northeast Queensland, Australia (the Outback, Daintree Rainforest and Great Barrier Reef). By participating in hands-on service learning projects, we will learn about sustainability, ecological restoration and resource conservation in New Zealand's North Island and Australia's tropical northeast region. Students will learn through classroom lectures and field trips, and then use their knowledge to assist community groups with long-term ecological research and conservation projects.
