With 15 years of experience in captive and wild fauna management, David has developed a diverse skill set that includes fauna identification, targeted amphibian surveying, GIS mapping, and desktop research, as well as professional report writing. David has a strong interest in native amphibian biology and conservation, having undertaken surveys and monitoring for CEVNT amphibian species. He also coordinated the only known amphibian survey on North Keppel Island in central Queensland and published a range extension for the slender bleating tree frog (Litoria balatus) following a survey in the Bundaberg QLD region.
David is experienced in organising and facilitating successful native frog identification workshops and wildlife-related presentations to a range of demographics. As curator of a small zoo in regional QLD, he supervised small teams, developed site-based policies and procedures, and maintained safety awareness with SWMS and daily pre-starts. David is committed to building strong client relationships and delivering projects within budget.
Additionally, David is an experienced fauna spotter catcher who understands the need for professionalism, quality, and integrity in his approach to client needs. He plans to undertake further post-graduate research on native amphibians. As the Wide Bay Coordinator, David brings an enthusiastic approach to your project.
