- What did you do before AWC?
- Over the last decade, I have worked in a variety of roles that were focused on the protection of threatened species. Most recently, I led the Threatened Species Partnership’s team within the Threatened Species Unit of the Queensland Government. Prior to that, I was a research fellow with the Wildlife Conservation Society (New York) and I explored solutions to the illegal trade in endangered species.
- Favourite animal protected by AWC
- The Numbat and Bridled Nailtail Wallaby
- Favourite place on an AWC sanctuary
- I haven’t had a chance to visit any AWC sanctuaries yet but I am most looking forward to visiting the lush northern wildernesses of Pungalina-Seven Emu and Piccininny Plains.
- Top three animals you would like to see (or have seen) in the wild
- Narwhal, Snow Monkey, and Dwarf Chameleon
- If you could visit any three places on the planet
- Anywhere we can still find vast, intact wilderness: Subantarctic islands, East African savanna (during migration would be perfect!), and AWC sanctuaries.
- Other interesting stuff
- I love nature photography: taking photos and seeing the breathtaking work of great nature photographers. I think photography is a powerful tool for conservation.
