22 students from Australia's University of the Sunshine Coast and Charles Darwin University visited Brunei's pristine Ulu Temburong National Park as part of the Australian Government's New Colombo Plan.
With the support of the University of Brunei Darussalam's Institute for Biodiversity and Environmental Research, the environmental science students undertook a week of research project in Temburong. They searched for unique plants and animals in the pristine rainforest surrounding the Kuala Belalong Field Studies Centre. A signature initiative of the Australian Government, the New Colombo Plan aims to strengthen cooperation in the Indo-Pacific, supporting Australian students to study and undertake internships across the region, complementing the thousands of students from the region choosing to study in Australia each year.
