CIEE Biology and Ecology Field Studies in Perth, Australia 
With access to the largest fringing coral reef in the world and some of the planet’s most remarkable biodiversity, western Australia is a treasure trove for students who are interested in ecology and marine biology. Whether you collect data on the 260-kilometer Ningaloo reef or join scientists to help protect endangered forest marsupials, you’ll sharpen your science skills, and return from the land down under with valuable hands-on experience.
