Research interests / activities

I foster eastern grey kangaroo EGK joeys on NSW South Coast. I take them in at approx 550g and raise them to approx 4.5kg which takes 8/9mths. I am interested in sharing any developmental observations with anyone interested in the topic for their own studies.


My expertise was leadership in school education. I used this to develop orientation training and competencies for Wandandian Kangaroo and Wallaby Rehab Centre WKWRC which manages over 80 volunteers weekly. This is a grass roots organisation. I currently hold Qualifications in Wildlife courses approved by WIRES, Wildlife Rescue South Coast and NSWNP.
