Western Barred Bandicoot.
Favourite place on an AWC sanctuary
Phillips Range, Marion Downs.
Top three animals you would like to see (or have seen) in the wild
Bilbies and Numbats (which we'll hopefully be seeing at Mt Gibson soon) and everything else I haven't seen before.
If you could visit any three places on the planet
Madagascar, Galapagos Islands, and Far North Queensland.
Other interesting stuff
I was a ballet dancer and spent several years dancing in Europe, before becoming an ecologist.
