East Timor Expedition

Students of Clairvaux MacKillop College have been offered an unprecedented opportunity to engage in conservation research and ecological discovery within the region of Timor Leste (formerly East Timor). Operation Wallacea (Opwall), an organisation specialising in biological research, has invited us to be one of the first schools to engage in data collection within this unique region, largely undocumented by ecologists. Students will work with teams of ecologists, academics and postgraduate researchers in the  field, and dive into the discovery of new species, in tropical marine and rainforest environments.
