Australia is one of the most biologically diverse countries in the world, with a large portion of species endemic to Australia. Preserving this wealth of biodiversity is important for future generations. Thought of by many as one of the worlds last wildernesses, Australia is home to a unique and fragile ecosystem that needs our help and protection.

These two exciting projects will enable you to contribute your time and skills to help the environment, broaden your life experience and work with others who share your love of nature! If you're looking for a broad experience then this project is your answer.

If you do any placement in Perth, an Indigenous (Aborigine) Heritage tour in Kings Park, Perth's No. 1 tourist attraction, is included in your itinerary, free of charge!
