What did you do before AWC?
In a previous life I worked as a marine biologist undertaking research along Victoria's amazing coastline. More recently I traded the wetsuit for the shirt and tie, working in natural resource management and policy before joining the team at AWC.
Favourite animal protected by AWC
There are so many to choose from, but the Greater Bilby is hard to go past!
Favourite place on an AWC sanctuary
I am yet to experience what AWC sanctuaries have to offer. So finding my favourite place will require many many trips to lots of sanctuaries just to be certain!
Top three animals you would like to see (or have seen) in the wild
Whale Shark, Silverback Gorilla, Grizzly (hopefully from afar…)
If you could visit any three places on the planet
Where do you start….Galapagos Islands, Antarctica, Madagascar, Iceland, Nepal, Myanmar…. so many places and so little time!
Other interesting stuff
I love travelling, seeing new places and meeting interesting people. I love getting outside and going for bush walks, tinkering with my bike or going for the occasional SCUBA dive. I am also an avid football supporter (AFL of course)
