Recently I managed to take a trip up to Charles Darwin Reserve, WA. CDR is a beautiful reserve, and boasts an impressive animal species list. Unfortunately timing for weather wasn’t the best, so not many herps around, just this lizard person and a few gecko species.
Recently I received my approval of PhD candidacy at Curtin University. My project, scholarship funded by the Centre for Mine Site Restoration (CMSR), will be looking at the behavioural responses of varanids (goannas/monitor lizards, pictured below) to mine site restoration. Watch this space for fieldwork updates!
