Bora is in the final year of her Bachelor of Environmental Science (Hons) within the School of Earth and Environmental Sciences at the University of Queensland. Her research interests mainly include assessing the biodiversity threats of mine tailings facilities. This research aims to use geospatial data to quantify the spatial overlap between Key Biodiversity Areas (KBA) and tailing facilities to determine the relationship between proximity to KBA and the likelihood of facility failure to illustrate whether the sites most likely to fail are also those with the greatest biodiversity threats. The main goal is to illustrate how many more facilitates may be considered “high risk” if corporate sustainability reporting methods were required to include threats to biodiversity.
