It has been a busy time over recent months at NGT, with our team undergoing a few minor changes – so it is time for an update!
In terms of recent departures, Dr Adam Miller is now lecturing full-time in an academic role at Deakin University (well done Adam!), but remains in the region (based in Warrnambool) and is still affiliated with NGT’s ecological genetic research projects.
A couple of our long-term staff, Lauren Kivisalu and Jess Bourchier, are currently on maternity leave – meaning one of our more recent arrivals, Toni Haywood, has been helping cover Jess’ role since the start of the year, based in NGT’s Mt Gambier office one day a week.
Other recent arrivals include Graduate Ecologists undertaking internships with NGT based in Adelaide and Mt Gambier. Tessa Roberts is a recent honours graduate working part-time with NGT (and jointly hosted by the Conservation Council of SA in Adelaide) as a Graduate Wetland Ecologist tackling tasks related to Fleurieu Swamps recovery, while Nicole Mojonnier has recently arrived in Mt Gambier and is our Graduate Ecologist coordinating the 2017 winter counts for the Orange Bellied Parrot along the far SW Victorian coast.
