Mark interned with the Conservation Ecology Centre over the summer of 2014/15, before re-joining the team as a Conservation & Research Assistant at
the beginning of 2016.
Originally from south-east Queensland, Mark completed his Bachelor of Science (Ecology and Conservation Biology) with Honours at Griffith University in 2012. Whilst his initial research work focused on bird communities, Mark gained a wide range of field skills through several internship and volunteer opportunities before joining the CEC. Some of these experiences include: radio-tracking reintroduced Brush-tailed Possums and trapping Western Quolls in the Ikara-Flinders Ranges National Park; trapping small mammals and reptiles in the central desert country of AWC’s Newhaven Sanctuary; and assisting in the translocation of several hundred Bridled Nail-tail Wallabies at AWC’s Scotia Sanctuary. Mark now assists in the delivery of all aspects of the CEC’s conservation programs.
