    Marcus CosentinoECU Biological Sciences graduate

    Fieldwork is an important part of the Biological Sciences course. I was able to help with reptile surveys and research projects all over the state.

    These opportunities took me to stunning areas of WA, including the Kimberley, and allowed me to get up close and personal with elusive species of native fauna that most people don't even know exist.
