Students will travel through tropical and sub-tropical Queensland studying landscape usage through the lends of the Millennium Ecosystem Assessment. From local experts and stakeholders, the group will learn about the opportunities and challenges that face those managing Australia's diverse natural resources for conservation, forest products, and tourism/recreational use. Highlights include trips to the Daintree (the world's most ancient rainforest), the Atherton Tablelands, the Australian Everglades, Noosa Biosphere, Koala conservation site, and the Great Barrier Reef! Centered in Cairns and Mooloolaba, this field-based program will introduce students to the peoples and wealth of natural bounty that is the northernmost part of Australia.
