Through CAC, I have seen the great differences in the world’s ecosystems and the diversity of living organisms on our planet. I have seen firsthand some of the effects of global warming from dried riverbeds to forests that have been devastated from forest fires. I have learned so much about the environment and people, I want to be able to share my experiences and newly acquired knowledge with as many people as possible. CAC has given me a way to share my experiences and the wonders of Australia.

CAC has helped me gain direction for my future. I have always known that I wanted a unique career that was centered on the environment, but I wasn’t sure of a direct path. CAC has given me the opportunity to see the Great Barrier Reef and the diversity of marine life that exists below the blanket of water that is our oceans. Conservation of this marine life is very important and I now know that I want to be part of it.
