Plant nut
What did you do before AWC?
Plant nut for self, private and public sector institutions.
Favourite animal protected by AWC
I love all animals.
Favourite place on an AWC sanctuary
There are a lot of really good places on most sanctuaries, which I am keeping to myself. Probably only Peter Stanton and I know of them...and we're going to try and keep it that way!!
Top three animals you would like to see (or have seen) in the wild
New Guinea Harpy Eagle
New Guinea Vulturine Parrot
If you could visit any three places on the planet
Raja Ampat, West Papua and go scuba diving, sea kayaking and bird watching; any remote areas without people; I grew up in the mountains of Norway, so I like them also.
Other interesting stuff
Nothing really, just a boring plant nerd - or so the fauna people tell me anyway.
