Study Marine Habitat Conservation & Restoration in Australia

Certificate III in Marine Habitat Conservation and Restoration

Marine exploitation and pollution are causing rapid damage to entire marine ecosystems globally, including Australia’s largest natural marine asset, the Great Barrier Reef.
This course supports the restoration of local ecosystems, accomplished in shorter terms and associated with projects on the ground. Students engage with project-based practical training in different coastal environments across Australia. By the end of the course students enter the workforce in a wide range of professions and are able to connect with local initiatives that focus on promoting healthy oceans and sustainable development. Graduates will become qualified marine conservation and restoration professionals

Marine habitat conservation and restoration projects are growing in extent and in economic value worldwide and there is a shortage of skilled professionals in these areas of expertise. These courses consist of small, clear, concise and practical units that provide students with practical skills and knowledge about ecological processes, ecosystem structures and the most adequate conservation and restoration methods for each environment. Students may also package this course with the Certificate IV in Environmental Management or Diploma of Sustainable Operations.
