Overview

 

I’ve been working with QPWS since 1996, initially on threatened frogs recovery but now on a range of terrestrial protected area management issues. I have an ongoing conservation project on the Kroombit tinkerfrog (Taudactylus pleione).

I have previously worked in northeast NSW and east Gippsland in Vic, largely undertaking forest fauna surveys.
