As regional manager for Wetland Care Australia, Cassie Price coordinates wetland conservation projects from Bundaberg to Kempsey and the adjacent parts of the Great Dividing Range.

"We work with grassroots community groups and farmers through to regional, state and federal government agencies as well as international groups like theWorld Wetland Network to protect, promote and restore Australian wetlands," Cassie said.

"My degree transformed my thinking. I got more interested in fisheries management because I could see how far behind aquaculture was from an environmental perspective." Cassie was attracted to the regional location of the Lismore campus and the practical components of the University's environmental degrees.

"Having that practical experience was really invaluable. My internship got me my first job."
