Always happy to be corrected on any identifications on my uploaded observations - that's how we learn! If I put an ID on your observation, I'm feeling confident, but everybody makes mistakes.. I make plentye.. ;)

August - 2022 BACK from an epic Bioblitz of the incredible Western Australian coast with @thebeachcomber and @nicklambert - good company! Early estimate is 55,000 photos between the three of us. Many uploads to do in the coming months!

I lead environmental education activities for all ages into the bush and beach of the Victorian Surf Coast to teach people about this incredible place through my eyes as a biologist and naturalist.

This coastline is home to many unique and beautiful creatures. I aim to document many of them here.
