School for Field Studies
The SFS Center for Rainforest Studies lies on the edge of the Atherton Tablelands in the heart of the traditional land of the Yidinji people, near the small town of Yungaburra. Protected World Heritage forests and farmland surround the Center. Student cabins are nestled within the rainforest, which comprises 97 percent of the property’s 153 acres. From our base in the rainforest, SFS students and faculty collaborate with local stakeholders to research the loss and fragmentation of once-extensive rainforests of the region.
