Justin Clarke’s Post From Australia - Friday, Feb. 6, 2015

February 10th, 2015 · No Comments

So I don’t know if I’ve told you yet but I’ve started to take my classes here. I’ve got rainforest ecology with this german lady named Siggy, Environmental Policy and socioeconomics with a Kenyan-Australian named Justus, and Resource Management with and native Queenslander named Catherine. It’s interesting to see the diversity that Australia has when it comes to it’s people.


Yesterday we were divided into groups and each group went to a different town. My group went to an old mining town that was established in the 1880s and we talked to the locals about how they feel about the rainforest and conservation.

Today we took a trip to some different geological spots to see crater lakes, some VERY old volcanoes, and just investigate some of the areas that had sedimentary rock that had been forced into ancient mountain ranges by tectonic forces. It’s been pretty fun so far and I’ve learned a lot!! Can’t wait to be able to send some pictures home!
