I am the Science Communication Manager of the Threatened Species Recovery Hub of the Australian Government's National Environmental Science Program.

The $60 million program is supported by the Australian Government and includes over 100 projects nationally, including plants, animals, ecological communities, policy, invasive species and other threats.
