Once in a life time, unique, learning experience

  • Driving and walking
  • 7 days / 6 nights
  • This is a unique opportunity to work alongside our expert ecologists from the BOOBOOK team while they undertake field surveys in Outback Queensland to document flora and fauna in remote and unexplored locations. Every day will be different as you participate in exploration walks and wildlife searches. Learn how to press, prepare and identify plant specimens. Use special techniques to identify birds, mammals, reptiles, amphibians and a range of invertebrate groups. Learn how to navigate with GPS and collect valuable ecological data ready for incorporation into databases.  Surveys will be conducted out of a range of base camps with varying accommodation and facilities.  No two trips will be the same!

    What to expect: Activities may include day and night wildlife searches, plant collecting and participating in all day explorational hikes. Be prepared to rough it and carry a load! Walks will be off track and potentially involve steep slopes (hills/mountains) and narrow gorges with uneven/loose ground, thick vegetation and long grass. Locations may be remote (i.e. several hours) from the nearest town. Tour is weather dependent and a contingency may be required for travel if inclement weather is experienced during the survey period.
