Summer Learning – A Conservation Research Project in the Rainforest

24 June 2014

Early this morning a small group of four secondary students in Years 11 and 12 and one teacher departed for a trip of a lifetime in the remote region of Sulawesi in Indonesia.

Patricia Buhrer, Hannan Azmir, both in Year 12, and Sean Hughes and Helena Smith in year 11, along with teacher Kris Van Der Mynsbrugge are heading off on a trip facilitated by Operation Wallacea, an organisation that runs a series of biological and conservation management research programmes in remote locations across the world.

The aim of the trip is to educate the students about the flora and fauna in the primary rainforest and coral marine ecosystems, while also conducting conservation research for on-going biodiversity projects in the area.

Their trip will continue into the first part of the summer holiday and they will return on 10 July. Good luck to the group and look out for a blog post from them in the new term, telling us all about their adventure and what they have learned from it.
