Good afternoon Land for Wildlife and Garden for Wildlife crew!
Time to introduce myself… I’m Caragh, the new Land for Wildlife coordinator! I join the team here at Low Ecological Services with a background in ecology and zoology and a few other ‘ologies’ from my time in Adelaide. I am a lover of birds (but a total amateur bird identifier) and spent several years of research looking at birds’ nest insulation as part of my PhD (keep your eyes open for the Rangelands Biology & Ecology seminars coming up, as I may present soon). A general lover of all things in the natural world, so it’s great to see all the new life that central Australia has to offer! I had a desert change last year when I moved to Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park and worked as an operations ranger on park, which was a great experience. Now I’m back in the big smoke to learn more and help my new neighbours find a way to tread lightly on this beautiful earth of ours by promoting conservation of the native wildlife.
Jen will be staying on with Land for Wildlife for a little while yet to help transfer some of her knowledge and experience (so we haven’t lost her just yet). Phew!
Since I’m new to Land for Wildlife and Alice Springs, please come say hello if you see me around.
