Growing up in rural NSW, Rebecca’s exposure to the environment and concern for wildlife conservation led her to complete a Bachelor of Animal Science with integrated honours at Charles Sturt University in Wagga Wagga.
Her honours project looked at the influence of habitat fragmentation on mallee woodland reptiles in an agricultural landscape. Whilst undertaking her tertiary studies, Rebecca completed various stints of volunteer work with conservation organisations and wildlife rescues. Her time assisting Arid Recovery and Bush Heritage with fieldwork was especially notable, teaching her valuable skills and consolidating her passion for conservation.
Rebecca is striving towards a career in ecological conservation so that she can aid in the preservation of Australia’s native flora and fauna. She is very excited to join the team at CEC to learn new skills, diversify her knowledge and apply effective conservation methods.
