What did you do before AWC?
I have worked in a variety and broad range of roles from development planning and assessment, to assisting private and public land managers with invasive species management. Additionally, participating in emergency response activities involving agricultural activities such as floods, bushfires and biosecurity events.
Favourite animal protected by AWC
Bilby (subject to change!)
Favourite place on an AWC sanctuary
With such a variety of landscapes covered by AWC Sanctuaries, the search might be ongoing! For now, the Pilliga forests provide plenty of exploring opportunities.
Top three animals you would like to see (or have seen) in the wild
So many and all for different reasons but Salt Water Crocodile, Lion and Wedge-tailed Eagle.
If you could visit any three places on the planet
So many places in Australia, Africa, and Canada
Other interesting stuff
I love being active or relaxing outdoors with friends and family and I’ve completed an Ironman triathlon.
