Why Study Zoology and Ecology at JCU?

JCU offers Zoology and Ecology students more access to field learning experiences than any other university in Australia.

Through access to our field stations in tropical rainforests, savannah woodlands, the Great Barrier Reef and partner groups internationally, you will develop the skills of a Zoologist and Ecologist through direct hands-on experience.

Enjoy access to the only canopy crane in Australia, and join us on field trips to such unique biodiversity regions as Borneo and the Galapagos Islands.

JCU also provides students with access to a research community of global standing, receiving the highest levels of recognition in areas such as ecology and being ranked Number Two in the world, and Number One in Australia for citations in the area of climate change research.

JCU's leading position is enhanced by the establishment of its new Centre for Tropical Biodiversity and Climate Change and Centre for Tropical Sustainability Science.

There are so many reasons to choose JCU.

We invite you to join us to help make the world a better place.
