On 19th May, 17 Environmental Management students from the Australian National University (ANU) visited Scottsdale Reserve.
Coming from a diverse range of locations – including Costa Rica, Myanmar, Indonesia and Africa – the students were interested in the kinds of field survey and monitoring that guide Scottsdale’s management. They were engaged in a variety of activities such as reptile surveys, kangaroo abundance counts and grassland assessments.
Caught in a deluge of rain, they were able to experience first-hand, the true nature of field survey work in an Aussie winter!
Away from the warm confines of theory-based studies in a class room, the cold, wet and tired students were relieved to finish up with a warm cup of tea and bickies in the shearing shed.
Many thanks to Lesley (Facilitator of our Kosciuszko 2 Coast partnership) who helped Nicki Mazur (from ANU) to run the successful day.
