Dan – A life spent surfing has given me a love for the ocean. I’m a self-confessed bird nerd and vow to see every bird in Australia before I die.

Heather – I love field ecology. I’ve worked in outback QLD and SA and now live and study in far north queensland. If I’m not busy looking at animals I sometimes attempt to restore old furniture.

Jason – Even though I’m not of an ecology background – quite the opposite in fact, I get enjoyment out of exploring nature and searching for those gems that live within the outback and forests of Australia. Outside of work I strive to create my own little bit of paradise in my back yard.

Kate – I grew up alongside the mighty Murray, where my curiosity for ecology flourished. Having worked in country VIC and SA, I’m now based in tropical QLD as an aquatic ecologist. When I’m not cooking up a storm, I love getting out and about, appreciating our spectacular landscapes and discovering our fascinating wildlife.  I also enjoy a good Australian saga novel.
