The Outback, Dr Barry Traill explains, ranks alongside the Amazon and the Antarctic for its sheer size and diversity of wildlife. But, as director of a 10-year project to conserve the Outback for the Pew Charitable Trusts, Dr Traill explains that more people, not less, are needed living ‘on country’ actively managing this vast, remote wilderness for conservation if it is to remain healthy. Dr Barry Traill is one of Australia’s leading conservation advocates. Driven by a lifelong love of Australia’s bush and unique wildlife, Barry has successfully combined his expertise in zoology, skills in advocacy, and his ability to motivate and collaborate, to secure large areas of Australia’s land and sea from destructive threats.
