Environment Research

Environment Research

I have chosen to have my scene located in Australia due to its vast open spaces and stories of people disappearing in the outback without a trace as quoted from Missingpersons.org 'It is hard to believe that in a well-developed and populated country like Australia about 35,000 people go missing every year . Among them, about 10000 go missing in New South Wales alone . In fact, in Australia the rate of missing persons is as high, or higher, than that of road traffic accident deaths, non-fatal road traffic accidents requiring hospitalization, and suicide.' (Putt, 2008) 

 Australian Outback Roads and Fuel Garages

Australian Fuel Pumps

The trucks used on the roads in Australia called road trains are a lot longer than those used any where else, hauling over three trailers and over 53 meters long.
