About Me I am a biologist who also likes to plant and hug trees! I study mangroves at the moment, but live with rainforest trees about. I also work at forest regeneration.

Lots of birds and bees and things like that around too. Sometimes a koala in the trees, a goanna or a wallaby wanders by.

I seem to still be idealistic and passionate. Not just about trees, but social justice, too. I am grieved by the world now, but am trying to be equanimical as getting stressed helps no one and is a barrier to getting things done!
