What did you do before AWC?
Many years as a vegetation mapper and field surveyor for the Queensland Herbarium, including habitat condition surveys, Mahogany Glider surveys and lots of botanical work. Many volunteer fauna surveys squeezed in during holidays! Before that, fauna surveys in East Gippsland, Victoria.
