His respect for nature and environment has led him to a AHC40920 Certificate IV in Conservation and Ecosystem Management and a new career.
“Growing up, I spent all my time outdoors exploring the wilderness and observing the native flora and fauna around me, which I've carried through my life. I always knew I would like to be working outdoors,” says Prashun.
Working previously in tourism, Prashun transitioned into conservation and land management and has used his Holmesglen course to learn about biodiversity and re-vegetation projects and pest, plant and animal management.
"My course has taught me a great deal about the importance of correct plant identification and the ability to tackle various invasive species.
“I’ve enjoyed the way it has focused on the importance of native flora and fauna while looking back at Australia’s cultural history, which plays a significant part in the way we should look at conservation and sustainability practices.”
