This course will be conducted under the guidance of university researchers at the Moreton Bay Research Station, a
facility of the prestigious University of Queensland (ranked 11th in the world in the areas of agriculture and environmental studies).
Moreton Bay has one of the highest levels of marine life diversity and is one of the few dugong habitats in the world. It is home to dolphins, manta rays, humpback whales (July-November) and many other creatures. Researchers and students from Europe and the United States also travel to and stay at this centre for research and training, creating a very international and highly academic environment. This environment also gives participants in the course a valuable opportunity to develop international networks.
