Bachelor of Environmental Science (Wildlife and Conservation Biology)

Landscape ecologist, GIS analyst

Deakin gave me the opportunity to go on two study abroad adventures, one to Borneo and one to South Africa, which were a real highlight for me. I also did a placement with AWC and lots of volunteering, which gave me even more hands-on experience and got me to some beautiful places like the Grampians and Gabo Island.
