Getting Students Involved In Science
About 45 students from Murdoch University have been helping establish monitoring plots on the Corridor.
Student Eliza-Jane Jacques added: “It’s been heartening to see the emergence of native tree saplings like marri and jarrah in certain sections of the cleared corridor.”
Student Taelum Slijderink said the experience had given her and fellow students a first-hand insight into the environmental impacts of clearing, and what is required for successful restoration.
“Learning about this will give us a better idea of how to deal with similar situations once we’re in the workforce,” she said.
