IWC student field trip to Western Australia
The 2010 IWC students are working through material on catchment and aquatic ecosystem health and water planning and economics with University of Western Australia staff. They are also going on a range of local field trips investigating major salinity, catchment land use management and water planning issues as part of a problem-based learning activity.
“We are staying in a place of great natural beauty,” said Dr Peter Oliver, Senior Lecturer at IWC. “From the camp we overlook Princess Royal Harbour. Over the last few days we have seen whales, sting rays, dolphins and seals."
