    Immerse yourself in the rich biodiversity of the eastern coastline of Australia and be a part of its conservation efforts.

    If you are passionate about the environment, love the ocean and the outdoors, and want to create positive change in the world, come down under to Sydney. This beautiful waterfront city boasts more than 3,000 marine species and an expansive network of coastal walking tracks, making it the perfect living laboratory for marine biology and sustainability studies. Through field work in aquatic reserves and national parks, observe key species, collect and analyze data, and discover threats from human activity and climate change. Lend a hand in bush regeneration and see firsthand the measurable effects of ecological restoration. When you are not learning alongside biologists and ecologists, you will spend time exploring its multicultural environment. Learn the stories of Aboriginal Australians, the world’s oldest living civilization, and their unique link with the land. Experience surf culture, play cricket with local teens, meet kangaroos and koalas, shop at a bustling market, try all kinds of Asian cuisines at Spice Alley, and much more.
