Profile

Judy is a Research Scientist in the Animal Science program of the Science and Conservation Division. Her background is field ecology and management of threatened fauna. Judy has worked extensively with several of the department's flagship conservation programs, including Western Shield and the Lorna Glen fauna translocations. Her current work involves gaining a better understanding of the ecology and distribution of the endangered and nationally significant northern quoll in the Pilbara landscape.
